Increase Staff Diversity

Present working group report on staff diversity

The working group on staff diversity will report to the president and provost by February 15, 2017.

Executive Vice President/Chief Human Resources Officer

The chair of the working group has identified data sources for regional labor markets, has prepared initial information for the working group, and is in the process of scheduling the meetings the group will need to complete its review and prepare its report. 


The working group on staff diversity presented their report to the Executive Committee on Inclusive Excellence by the February 15, 2017 deadline, and on February 20, 2017 the Executive Committe accepted the working group's recommended goal of increasing staff diversity to 12% by 2020. This is a four percentage point increase from our current staff profile, as reported to the Department of Labor.  The working group, composed of hiring officers and diversity supporters from across the campus, offered several strategies to aid in reaching that goal, which will be incorporated into our practices as feasible.

A summary of these recommendations will be posted shortly.
