The University of Alabama President’s Advisory Committee for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) released its comprehensive report, which includes strategies for ongoing coordination and expansion of UA’s efforts.
The “Path Forward” was developed with an eye to the future on issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion and higher education, said Christine Taylor, vice president of DEI, associate provost and chair of the advisory committee. It builds on the third goal of the university’s strategic plan to enrich learning and work environments by providing an accepting, inclusive community that attracts and supports a diverse faculty, staff and student body.
