The University wide Diversity and Inclusion Plan represents more than a year of work by dozens of people. I am proud of the work done by the Diversity and Inclusion Planning Work Group. If you have comments, questions or concerns about the final report please feel free to meet with me. The Plan is a living document--new initiatives can and will be added in the years to come.
