Phase Two Plan
The plan includes updated goals, action steps, and data that will inform the university’s work.
Based on analyses of campus survey data, external consultations, and meetings with more than 1,000 community members, and using the Association of American College and Universities’ Inclusive Excellence as a framework, the first stage of the plan taught us how to listen, and how best to act.
We began infusing diversity, 股本, and inclusion at strategic, 战术, and operational levels of the university. The result was a strong foundation of early progress, including more inclusive policies and equitable practices, honest assessments of the challenges we face, and programs to increase all community members’ sense of belonging.
From increasing access to educational opportunity to building an antiracist community that fosters innovation, the next phase of Inclusive Excellence will build on the sustainable foundation of the last two years. With an enhanced focus on advancing racial 股本 and a clearly defined accountability structure, we will continue to make strides toward a more just community—and world.
Throughout the next stage of the plan, we are pursuing action items and concrete tactics, situated across five overarching goals, that prioritize advancing racial 股本 and extending inclusive excellence to our mission of building knowledge and ideas through scholarship, 研究, and creative works.
The phase two plan includes key metrics to measure progress against our goals. By 2023:
80% of senior administrators, 教师, 工作人员, 学生, and alumni leaders engaged in IE training will report learning something they can use to be more inclusive in their everyday work
至少 70% of 学生, 教师, and 工作人员 will feel that AU is committed to creating 一个校园 where everyone has a sense of belonging
至少 65% of 学生, 教师, and 工作人员 will report that AU is committed to combatting discrimination and bias
