  • Increase the diversity of the University community to reflect our global and multicultural society through the recruitment and retention of underrepresented populations
  • Improve the academic climate of the College so that it is increasingly civil, respectful, accessible and free from harassment
  • Create, sustain and improve an environment that supports intellectual inquiry, cultural enhancement and awareness of broader societal issues
