Join us for this year’s DEI Summit, featuring our annual community assembly, community open house, DEI 2.0 plan information session, and more.

Our DEI 2.0 plan, marking the university’s second five-year strategic effort, is set to launch in 2023. The transition has been a two-year process: In 2021, we undertook a comprehensive evaluation of the efforts made under DEI 1.0. The subsequent year, 2022, was dedicated to meticulously planning for our next strategic chapter: DEI 2.0. As we now move forward into 2023, we will witness the culmination of our collective efforts and valuable community input, as we inaugurate the DEI 2.0 plan at this year’s anticipated DEI Summit.
