Action Plan for Diversity

Entitled “Inclusive Excellence: An Action Plan for Diversity at UD,” the plan was authored by Carol Henderson, vice provost for diversity, with input from departments and individuals across the campus.

In an opening letter, UD President Nancy Targett and Provost Domenico Grasso write, “We are encouraged by the progress that has been made so far and the deep commitment shown throughout the University to keep moving toward this more diverse future.” Acknowledging that there is still much work to do, they conclude by encouraging members of the University community to read the plan and consider what they can do both professionally and personally to help the University reach its goals.

“I hope ‘Inclusive Excellence’ will spark discussion and inspire action in our community,” Henderson said. “This is a living document, designed to evolve and grow with the University community as we reach our goals and milestones and target new objectives for ourselves and our campus. I look forward to working and collaborating with members of the University community to achieve our goals.”
