Strategic collaborations with academic and administrative
offices at UB to enhance equity and inclusion is at the core of our
mission. Here are some of our collaborations and initiatives.
A Community of Equity & Inclusion Researchers is being established to facilitate, foster, and improve the quantity and quality of faculty research on Equity and Inclusion across the campuses, for the purpose of increasing discussions of E&I within academic departments, creating interdisciplinary networks of E&I researchers, increasing engagement between faculty scholars and the Buffalo Community, and increasing the profile of this area of research at UB.
An Equity and Inclusion Dashboard is being developed to present and report data that provides a "snapshot" of campus diversity, and measures the perception of equity and inclusion at UB by faculty, staff, and students in a clear, and visually-engaging manner.
The VPEI's Listening Tour will be expanded to identify and understand equity and inclusion challenges and opportunities of department chairs and students.
Data will be collected about the use and occurrence of diversity training across the academic and administrative units.
