Op-Ed: DEI work is critical at the University

Psychology Department, Christina Robinson

The work required to make the University of Michigan campus a more diverse, more equitable and more inclusive community of scholars requires a long-term commitment. That’s why, when we developed and launched our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategic plan last fall, it was a five-year plan.

And, like with any plan of this magnitude and significance, there were immediate calls for us to do more and do it quicker. That’s a natural reaction.

But today I want to make sure that our community knows just how important this work is for all of us. It is so important that there is a team of more than 200 UM employees on the Ann Arbor campus who are devoting all or a portion of their professional lives to this work.
