Diversity & Inclusion

Our college is open and welcoming, deriving strength from a plurality of identities and lived experiences. We will build a more diverse and inclusive environment to fulfill our mission, consistent with University policies and state and federal law.


Our Goal Areas:

  • INCLUSIVE CLIMATE: The College will ensure an inclusive and welcoming environment for its students, faculty, and staff.

  • FACULTY HIRING AND RETENTION: The College will increase the proportion of tenure-system under-represented faculty utilizing aggressive recruitment, outreach and retention strategies.

  • DEVELOP FUTURE FACULTY: The College and its units will develop programs to increase the proportion of under-represented individuals in the academic pipeline utilizing aggressive recruitment, outreach and retention strategies.

We will measure success by increasing the proportion of under-respresented tenure-system faculty and PhD students.
