“As we undergo a change of university leadership, it’s important to reaffirm the commitment from the top to the value of diversity. The university’s core missions of knowledge creation and education depend on ensuring that a diverse set of voices are welcome and included in the conversation, that everyone on campus is treated with respect, and that we remove barriers that prevent people from reaching their full potential. The IDEAL initiative has been important in bringing attention to these kinds of issues, and this is work that needs to continue."

– Provost Jenny Martinez
