Message from the Chief Diversity Officer
We’re driven toward Inclusive Excellence.
With the recent adoption of our Diversity Statement, the launch of the Diversity Strategic Plan symbolizes our effort to make diversity and inclusion a top priority. The planning process started as an exercise to develop actionable goals and measured outcomes, but it became much more. Through the process, our college became more engaged in discussing the importance of our diversity statement, framing diversity from an academic perspective, and identifying opportunities for Inclusive Excellence at a unit-based and college-wide level.
At Westminster, we strive to make Inclusive Excellence a cornerstone of our institution. Having this mindset means that we see diversity, inclusion, and equity as a critical part of our culture.
This has been a campus-centered process where all members of our community have been asked to participate at either the unit or campus-wide level. Therefore, it will take all of us, our alumni, and our community members to make this plan a success.
I extend a personal invitation for you to explore this website. You will learn how our college approached this process using an established framework for diversity in higher education that led us to our goals.
We are one Westminster, and together we can move our college forward and toward a more inclusive institution driven by academic excellence.
