DEIB Unit Plans

Many campus units – offices, student organizations, departments, and divisions – are using or want to develop specific plans to focus their diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) efforts. Through consultation and support, the Office for Institutional Equity & Inclusion can help you strengthen your DEIB planning efforts through a focus on the following objectives:

  1. ensure that unit plans contribute meaningfully to institutional goals of representation, belonging, and capability
  2. utilize the wisdom and experience of the planning unit, as well as colleagues at UR and elsewhere, to create the most impactful plans
Our longer term goal is to develop a campus-wide culture of savvy DEIB planning.

Here are some of the ways we work with you to help you meet those objectives:

  • clearinghouse for resources related to DEIB planning, including in-house examples
  • holistic thought-partnering for all phases of DEIB planning, including data interpretation, team engagement, and goal setting
  • deepening the alignment of unit-level efforts with institutional DEIB goals
  • design and facilitation of unit-level workshops and focus groups
