Chico state has added a new priority to its Strategic Plan for the Future. The new priority was drafted by the University Diversity Council last year, and after being reviewed by a number of Chico State committees and individuals, it was approved. The plan states “we will continue to develop and enhance programs, policies and activities to create and sustain a welcoming and inclusive learning and working environment for all.”

What does this mean for the university? Some of the actions to be implemented include:

  • Increase university outreach and access for underrepresented and diverse student groups
  • Improve the success of students from underrepresented populations
  • Ensure that curricular and co-curricular programs foster diversity,
    equity, and inclusion competencies and engagement with the issues
  • Engage and support faculty, staff and student scholarship, creativity and research on diversity
  • Develop a shared understanding of “inclusive excellence” and what it means to be a Hispanic-Serving Institution
  • Develop, implement and regularly assess policies, programs,
    activities and funding mechanisms that create and sustain a welcoming
    and inclusive campus climate
  • Increase diversity in faculty, staff and administration at all levels of the University
  • Design and implement a system of recognition and accountability for
    increasing campus diversity and fostering a welcoming and inclusive
    learning and working environment

The added priority was implemented on May 11.
