Pathways to Student Success (Strategic Plan) - Diversity and Inclusion Priority Team
Diversity and inclusion demonstrate the ability to welcome a variety of voices, personal experiences, and world views that foster thought, continual dialogue, and change through the intentional, active and recurring engagement of others to address equity, social justice, and diversity challenges. Cultural Competence refers to one’s journey along a continuum and goes beyond awareness to include skill-building.
Strategic Goal 1 [Learn It]: Increase Self-awareness
Create and enhance opportunities to build self-awareness, knowledge and skills to interact effectively with aspects of diversity, inclusion, culture and global differences.
Through this goal individuals should create an environment where they will be challenged to examine themselves and participate in new opportunities to build areas of personal cultural competence.
Strategic Goal 2 [Live It]: Promote Inclusive Environment
Promote a welcoming and inclusive university environment by demonstrating a commitment to the principles of diversity and inclusion in all interactions.
For complete details on the outcomes and initiatives associated with these goals visit the Pathways to Student Success homepage.
