Vice President’s Message: Reflecting on our Five-Year Strategic Plan and Focusing on the Finish Line Ahead
Student Life achieved significant progress in Years One, Two and Three of our Five-Year Plan to improve Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Michigan. Highlights of our work with students over the past year include the opening of a new Trotter Multicultural Center in the heart of campus, a successful and growing DEI student internship program and the delivery of 66 Social Justice education and Intercultural Development programs. Notable progress on our staff plan includes successful delivery of 26 Unconscious Bias training sessions with 473 staff in addition to hosting 29 DEI professional development events across the division. We also successfully developed a new compensation model to facilitate increased equity and improve fairness and consistency in compensation practices.
