Goal: Cultivate a deeper and broader degree of human understanding by:
• Developing additional courses and co-curricular activities that bring students into contact with issues of gender, race, ethnicity and cross-cultural experiences to help them develop the skill sets needed to negotiate multi-perspective situations;
• Providing robust support for research and scholarly activities that explore the achievements and sufferings of cultures different from one’s own;
• Promoting and valuing openness, diversity and inclusiveness in all campus activities.
Goal: Promote appreciation for the richness of diversity, people and voices by:
• Building a critical mass of underrepresented faculty, staff and students by designing comprehensive plans that will guide campus diversity efforts and develop performance measures to evaluate the success of those plans;
