The Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) Plan is the campus’ blueprint for diversity, equity and inclusion efforts and outlines 3 key areas of impact: Climate, Infrastructure and Leadership. Designated by campus leaders, the 26-member IDEA Council has begun their work of prioritizing the recommendations outlined in the IDEA Plan.
Led by co-chairs Teresa Hernandez and Lisa Flores, the full council began meeting monthly in September 2020 and will spend the next few months gathering data and focusing on student, staff and faculty recruitment and retention. During this time, subcommittees will identify gaps and areas where the campus can improve its recruitment and retention efforts.
