Dietrich College Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan

In the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, we are committed to recruiting, retaining and cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive community. We believe these values are key to the very heart of our college — that it is a moral imperative for us to provide equal opportunity and support to all, and that doing so makes us a better college. We strive to make Dietrich College a place where people of all identities, perspectives and experiences feel welcome, able to present their authentic selves and empowered to reach their full potential. Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. However, it is clear that we have not always upheld these values and made these aspirations a reality. We must do better — and we will. Guided by our shared understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion for the university, we developed this strategic plan to articulate actionable steps that Dietrich College can take both immediately and in the future. This work will be ongoing. But we will be a better place, in every way, for doing it.
