Inclusive Excellence Action Plan for Racial Equity and Antiracism 2020-2021

Listen and learn    Impact through intentional action   Fail forward    Transform together

We commit to the principles of LIFT SU and the following action plan to drive institutional change toward racial equity. We will prioritize affirmation of and allyship with our Black Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) community at Seattle University, and take strategic action to address systemic racism and impact throughout the institution. The top 5 priority areas:

  1. Recruitment and Retention of BIPOC Students  
  2. Bias Prevention and Campus Climate Care 
  3. Recruitment and Retention of BIPOC Faculty and Staff  
  4. Narrative Through Art and Symbols  
  5. Build Capacity and Invest in Infrastructure

These action steps are a further evolution of the 2016 comprehensive blueprint -- Task Force on Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Final Report and Recommendations (2016), and aligns with Reigniting Our Strategic Directions adopted by the Board of Trustees in November 2021.
