Themes of the DEIB Plan

Themes and action items

The six thematic areas for Our Lens, Our Focus, Our K-State were identified through careful review of institutional, state and national data. The President's Commission on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (PCDEIB) reviewed faculty and staff incumbency data in comparison to our KBOR peer institutions; data on student enrollment, retention, matriculation and graduation rates across several demographics, including race, gender, socioeconomic status and first generation; conducted an institutional diversity and inclusion S.W.O.T. analysis by reviewing stages of Multicultural Organizational Development , or MCOD; and reviewed national best practices in diversity and inclusion.

Please explore the six resulting areas of focus that resulted from this work below. Each area contains a detailed plan using a 6 A Framework: Awareness, Alignment, Aim, Action, Accountability and Assessment. Additionally, a glossary of terms is available to assist you in navigating language utilized throughout the strategic plan to ensure a common understanding.
