Goals and Objectives

The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion provides leadership for the University to build on its core principles of inclusiveness in learning environments, programs, workforce and strategic partnerships.

To that purpose, the Division seeks to do the following:

  • Recruit, retain and graduate more diverse students.
  • Recruit, retain and promote more diverse faculty and staff.
  • Build a more inclusive and welcoming campus environment.
  • Develop a more culturally competent campus community.

In affirming UA’s commitment to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action, the Division will establish a holistic and integrated vision that fosters a welcoming and supportive environment for students, faculty, staff, visitors and the community at large—regardless of cultural differences, beliefs, values, ethnicity, race, age, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, gender identity, or religion.
