Vice President’s Message: Reflecting on our Five-Year Strategic Plan and Focusing on the Finish Line Ahead
Student Life has achieved significant progress in Years One, Two, Three, and Four of our Five-Year Plan to improve Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Michigan. Beginning in 2015, Student Life engaged a broad cross-section of students, staff and research to ensure a grounded and informed plan to be implemented over the next five years. Connections were made early in the planning process, including town halls and individual and group sessions with students, student leaders, student organizations, student employees, and with our staff. Building off this strong foundation of stakeholder involvement, our plan continues to be inspired by ongoing student and staff insights and has shaped our strategic and iterative priorities to improve diversity, equity and inclusion at Michigan as are summarized in the Student Life DEI Plan framework of Strengthen, Innovate, Assess, Enhance and Engage.
