DEI Strategic Plan: the Highlights
Goal 1: Develop shared, School-wide lexicon and practice that prioritizes DEI & justice-centered teaching
Through training, accountability practices, and outfacing programming, SWLF will offer the resources faculty need to engage in justice-centered teaching.
Goal 2: Recruit, mentor, and retain students of color
In connection with Goal #3, this goal aims to de-center whiteness in SWLF and to address the needs of students not yet covered by our current methods of outreach or our curriculum. It also addresses the reality that students of color will not feel fully served by SWLF without a faculty that includes people of color.
Goal 3: Create inclusive and supportive work environment for faculty and staff of color
In order to meet Goal #2, SWLF must work with intention to become a School where faculty of color thrive. This includes reviewing our practices of labor distribution and our School climate, and also examining those practices in comparison with other OSU Schools and programs.
