DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
To advance the ideals of academic excellence and its symbiotic relationship with diversity, equity and inclusion, President Schlissel has called upon the university’s vast energies and intellectual and planning resources to develop U-M’s first five-year strategic plan on diversity, equity and inclusion. The President’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Strategic Planning Initiative was officially launched in September 2015 after more than a year of pre-launch activities. The planning process has been designed to engage all sectors and constituents of the university and the planning structure comprises more than 90 planning leads in every school, college and unit.
