DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
On February 28, 2019, nearly 100 faculty and staff gathered in Indianapolis for the Strategic Plan Retreat, where they reviewed the strategic plan progress after year one and refreshed strategies and goals for year two. After hearing participant feedback and thorough discussion at the retreat, it was affirmed to add an eighth goal to the Strategic Plan that focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion.
Though Ivy Tech has made some progress, we must be more intentional and focused on advancing diversity, equity and inclusion. Adding Goal 8 to the Strategic Plan creates accountability across the system and brings forward a renewed level of excitement and sustained commitment. In the coming months, employees and students from across the College will have the opportunity to weigh in on “Goal 8: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” strategies, tactics and metrics. As the information is affirmed, it will be added to the strategic plan website and marketing materials.
