Diversity and Inclusion
The Office of Administration and Planning has a Plan for Inclusive Excellence that is focused on increasing the demographic diversity of our workforce to be more reflective of the university population that we serve, improving the retention of our diverse talent, and building cultural competency among staff to support a more inclusive work environment. These initiatives align with our diversity mission, vision, and goals.
Administration and Planning strives to keep diversity and inclusion at the forefront of our leadership agenda and work collaboratively to develop programs, policies, practices, and initiatives that reflect our commitment to building a diverse workforce and creating an inclusive work environment.
We value, celebrate, and leverage our differences to inspire an environment of innovation and creative problem solving to meet the needs of our students, faculty, staff, patients, customers, visitors, communities, and other stakeholders.
