The Office for Campus Diversity offers many opportunities for students, faculty, staff and community members to help build on our successes and pursue inclusive excellence.
Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence
In August 2019, the University President approved the Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence -- an ambitious roadmap for building a more inclusive community over the next three years. Based on the Inclusive Excellence Strategic Framework, the plan is more than just a short-term project or an initiative from a single office. It requires an institutional transformation in which everyone plays a part.
Diversity Advisory Council
The purpose of the Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) is to be a catalyst for change and an advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion within the campus and surrounding community. The DAC provides support for programming, training and resources for University students, faculty, staff and community stakeholders. The DAC supports the mission of the Office for Campus Diversity in cultivating a campus climate that is inclusive and welcoming of diverse perspectives.
Women’s Leadership Conference
The 13th annual Women’s Leadership Conference will bring together students, faculty, staff and community members to commemorate National Women’s History Month and promote gender equity in leadership. The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for personal and professional leadership development that is centered on the needs of women from various cultural backgrounds. Join us on March 5, 2020 at the UL Lafayette Student Union for a full day of educational breakout sessions, inspirational awards presentations, and empowering keynote speakers.
