IUPUI’s mission as an urban-serving institution positions the campus to soon be a majority-minority campus, as we continue to attract more racially and ethnically diverse students. This provides an opportunity for IUPUI to exemplify a welcoming and authentically inclusive culture that promotes access and success for students, faculty, and staff, places an emphasis on social justice, and signals a welcoming and inclusive campus climate.
This task force will draw on the expertise of IUPUI’s diverse students, faculty, and staff to identify opportunities for learning, engagement, programming, resources, and services to address our multicultural environment. This will include an exploration of multicultural competence through personal interactions, training, and educational resources integrated in curricular and co-curricular offerings. While IUPUI has made strides in its efforts to promote multicultural inclusion, this task force will look for additional ways we can strengthen and sustain this work across campus.
