Strategic Plan Priority Themes

Designing Infrastructure

Policy, Procedures, Practices

Creating equitable organizational structures by identifying and dismantling barriers such as unfair or inconsistent policies, procedures, and practices which advantage some and disadvantage others.

Using assessment tools to create a constant feedback loop between data and the design of procedures, policy, processes, and curriculum.

Re-envisioning committees, teams, campus events, and projects so that ADEI strategies (welcoming diverse perspectives, asking difficult questions like who is not represented in the room and why, who has access and who does not, disrupting status quo and welcoming innovation) are embedded and infused into all aspects of the work.

Cultivating Community

Connecting, Welcoming, Belonging

  • promoting a sense of belonging for all
  • increasing pro-social behaviors across campus
  • creating a campus culture and climate that fosters an institutional antiracist identity
  • having courageous conversations
  • caring for health and wellness
  • putting in an extensive effort to recruit, hire, and retain our staff, faculty, and students (e.g., mentorship, coaching, equitable search processes, and admission procedures, and taking serious bias incidents, discrimination, and harassment reporting and patterns (in consideration of all protected classes).
  • engage in activities that encourage positive interpersonal interactions, such as team-building outings and exploration of personal and professional traits and work styles preferences

Building Capacity

Development, Education, Growth

Supporting (psychologically and monetarily) professional development, growth, and advancement of all community members.

Motivating all community members to engage with opportunities to strengthen their awareness (checking your privilege, recognizing power, understanding the influence of your position), knowledge, and skills

Supporting risk-taking without negative repercussions.

Encouraging involvement in institutional programming, education, and training that adds value to the quality of work and student life. Making an intentional effort to embrace our vulnerability (permission to make mistakes/ask for help).
