Our institutional commitments to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging serve as the foundation for this urgent and important work and build seamlessly on the previous Making Excellence Inclusive goals.

As a campus community, we commit to the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and educational opportunity in pursuing our campus mission.
Our ongoing commitments include:

  • recruiting, retaining, and supporting a diverse, talented university community that fosters academic and workplace excellence and furthers the University’s mission and values.

  • cultivating inclusive living, learning, and work environments in which all can fully participate in institutional life, experience a sense of belonging, and contribute to the flourishing of others.

  • fostering and sustaining a skilled intercultural community to enrich our campus, region, state, nation, and the world.
