Achieving our Vision through Diversity, Equity & Inclusive Excellence
We commit to every student - especially those who are from historically underserved communities - that they are welcome here, belong here, and will succeed here in this rigorous and challenging academic environment. As an actively anti-racist institution, we dismantle systemic barriers in ways that nurture the well-being of all members of our campus community.
3.1 Recruit and retain a diverse community of teacher-scholars, staff, counselors, coaches, volunteers and administrators who will serve as role models for our diverse student body and have a commitment to the academic success of our students.
3.2 Recruit and retain a diverse community of students that includes our local and global communities.
3.3 Address the diverse needs of our students by providing tailored support services, technology for equitable instructional access and opportunities, resources and inclusive curriculum that meet and celebrate them where they are.
3.4 Promote a learning and working environment where all members of the campus community can thrive and feel heard, respected and valued.
3.5 Commit individually and collectively to shared values of institutional equity, social justice, inclusion and care.
3.6 Institutionalize and highlight supportive initiatives for underserved and historically excluded student populations that lead to educational access, graduation, and lifelong success.
3.7 Apply the power of our diversity to create unique solutions and innovations, while engaging the campus and community in creating a more inclusive, and environmentally sustainable future.
3.8 Support socially just and environmentally sound practices that meet the needs of current and future generations.
As a campus community, we have completed the first phase of the strategic planning process. The next phase involves developing an implementation plan for each goal that will get posted here once completed. At this stage we have to bring our most innovative ideas and best practices to develop a set of action items that we can implement over the five to seven years to get us to our vision.
We encourage all members of the campus community to collaborate on action items so that we can leverage our synergies and existing expertise to create seamless educational experiences for our students. Check out our implementation plan and timeline to discover how you can contribute to the next phase of our strategic plan. You can also submit ideas through firstname.lastname@example.org.
