Our Impact

A Call to Action and Our Successes

The most recent update of Higher Values in Higher Education is a call to action. Embedded throughout the document is our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. In Fall 2021, President Huang made it a priority to focus on diversity, equity, inclusion. The priorities he set out in the University’s Diversity Statement guided the revisions of the strategic plan. In addition to revised goals, the priorities have also led areas across the university to focus on new measures for success.

The University is committed to comprehensive accountability reporting structures and transparency of results. Each Spring all areas of the university are required to submit an annual report on strategic plan priorities and accomplishments from within their area. The University's core values shown below are links to dashboards with measurable results.
