This week and next: Town hall sessions on implementing campus Diversity Framework

Members of the campus community have the opportunity to learn more about “Forward Together, a Diversity Framework for UW-Madison” and offer their input on implementation of the framework at three upcoming sessions that will be held during the month of October.

After a deliberative process led by the Ad Hoc Diversity Planning Committee that included input from campus and the broader community, Forward Together, a Diversity Framework for UW-Madison, was vetted last spring by UW-Madison’s four shared governance entities. The framework included 30 recommendations for action, ranging from the development of diversity-centric leadership experiences to building stronger connections to the broader Madison community. Now, the process of implementation begins, which will require input from the entire campus.

In order to actualize our institutional vision for diversity we need to continue to work together as a campus community to formulate the specific action items that will bring the goals of the framework to life.
