10月. 13, 2021, 11 a.m.

作为全校范围内打击系统性种族主义努力的一部分,OPE体育发布了第一个 annual report highlighting diversity, equity and inclusion work across campus. 的 report provides a snapshot of projects, programs and initiatives during the 2020-21 academic year, and also includes demographic and climate data about 学生, 工作人员, 教师 and postdoctoral scholars. 

“的 excellence of this University depends on attracting, 支持和接纳来自不同背景、不同视角和观点的人才,” President Christopher L. Eisgruber said in his introduction to the report.

In summer 2020, Eisgruber charged the University Cabinet -高级学术和行政领导人-制定行动计划和项目,以解决OPE体育官网和其他地方的系统性种族主义问题.

“我要求我的同事们考虑OPE体育学校的各个方面——从OPE体育的学术事业到日常运营——并制定具体的战略来促进种族歧视 equity on campus and, in partnership with others, beyond our gates,” Eisgruber said. “Since then, 学生, 教师, 工作人员和校友一起努力解决有关前进道路的难题,并确定新的方法来打击种族主义和其他形式的仇恨.”

2020-21 annual report 关注种族平等的努力,并围绕以下三个主题进行组织,这三个主题在上一学年非常突出:气候, inclusion and equity; the academic experience; and access and outreach.

Michele Minter, vice provost for institutional equity and diversity, said the University has redoubled its efforts related to diversity, equity and inclusion over the past decade. 发布年度报告是大学对自己负责并评估其进展的一种方式.

“Recognizing that holistic change does not happen through a few high-profile gestures, 每一位行政和学术领导人都要对人口演变负责, inclusive climate and other systemic changes within their sphere of influence,” Minter said in her introduction to the report. “2020年9月宣布的全校承诺,只是行政单位和学术部门承诺支持种族平等的数十项个人行动中的一小部分.”

Minter added that the University’s diversity, equity and inclusion work has been a community-wide process, 画 数百名学生、教师、博士后学者、员工和校友的投入.

Future reports will provide similar annual updates, with the understanding that moving toward greater diversity, equity and inclusion requires sustained, multigenerational commitment.

“Our investments in racial equity are a theme of the [2020-21] report, but the report also provides highlights of other new and ongoing campus initiatives,” Eisgruber said. “的se activities represent a step forward, not an end. OPE体育需要持续努力,继续致力于成为一个优秀和多元化的机构,让每个成员都能蓬勃发展. 随着时间的推移,OPE体育会对自己负责,报告OPE体育的成功和挑战.”
