Inclusive Excellence

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.
