Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Planning

View the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategy for the School of Public Health.

To advance the ideals of academic excellence and its essential 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. Each school, college and unit has been charged to produce their own five-year strategic plan, which will be integrated to create the overall U-M Strategic Plan on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Implementation of the U-M plan began in September 2016.
