Update on Diversity Action Plan

Posted on 2/7/2018 11:23:32 PM

As co-chairs of the President’s Commission on Diversity and Inclusion, we want to thank all the campus groups who have invited us to present information about the draft Diversity Action Plan and everyone who has taken the time to offer feedback to us.

The discussions and comments during these sessions have been extremely important to this ongoing work, and we look forward to meeting with more university groups this month. If you would like to have a representative of the commission meet with your group, please e-mail diversity-inclusion@iup.edu.

Collaboration and buy-in is key to the success of this important work. We invite everyone in the community to review the proposed plan and offer feedback. Comments are invited through February 28, 2018, at diversity-inclusion@iup.edu.

We will continue to update you on the Commission’s work on the website, which also includes the full draft action plan.

An open forum for the IUP and Indiana communities is in the planning stages. Information will be released as soon as details are finalized.

Thank you for your continued commitment to this important initiative. I know that we all believe in a campus community that is inclusive and welcoming for all to live, work, and learn.
