Comments Sought on Revised Goals for Diversity Plan

Diversity matters logo

The Diversity Strategic Plan Steering Committee is seeking comments on proposed revisions to the goals identified in the campus’ Diversity Strategic Plan.

The strategic plan, adopted in spring 2015, set forth five goals to improve the current state of diversity at UMass Amherst. Last spring, Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy asked the Diversity Strategic Plan Steering Committee to consider necessary revisions to the goals in light of feedback received during fall 2015 listening sessions and discussion forums.

The committee’s proposed revisions are intended to clarify the goals and to address gaps that were observed.

The proposed revisions and a link to a feedback form are available at

Comments are requested by Nov. 11.
