U-M DEI Strategic Plan

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are at the heart of the University of Michigan’s vision for student life and academic success on campus. The university is currently in the fifth year of its five-year strategic plan to promote these values. In addition to a campus-wide plan, every school, college, and unit at the University of Michigan drafted DEI plans specific to their own circumstances. Students and faculty alike complete yearly educational trainings on myriad topics including gender-based and sexual misconduct prevention. Each year, the university releases a report detailing progress made during each step of the strategic plan.

In year four, Michigan made progress as a campus community in implementing or continuing programs designed to make the university a more welcoming and safe place for all our students. Re-opened in 2019, the Trotter Multicultural Center resumed its provision of student support services and academic courses. This is just one of the many efforts undertaken by UMich in recent years to improve life on campus. Check out the report on year four here.
