The OneIT Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is tasked with planning and implementing the OneIT DEI Action Plan in collaboration with OneIT leaders and other campus partners.

The initiatives in the plan are designed to inspire a feeling of belonging, improve retention rates, and increase the number of individuals who would recommend the university as a place of employment for IT professionals and others.

The plan aims to help OneIT colleagues learn more about DEI and apply that knowledge to interactions with others and to the technical solutions our community implements. The community’s ability to understand each other better, communicate using inclusive language, and consider the impact of our work on others will directly influence the success of faculty, staff, and students.

OneIT DEI efforts align with the overall mission of the university and the campus DEI action plan.
