Of The Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The following items reflect recommendations drawn from numerous campus working groups, the history of DEI work at Colgate, and best practices drawn from other institutions. Each item is assigned to a specific department or departments or committee and given a date for completion. It is important to stress here that this plan represents an attempt to set a foundation for ongoing work. Therefore, any given due date will not mark the end of the work in any area; rather, these dates represent the expected delivery of one step, a step required for the next steps to be taken.

I. Foundational DEI Structure

II. Equity in the Student Experience
