This report, approved December 2017, is the culmination of work and insight concerning DEI that was produced from a task force constituted by President Chaouki Abdallah that September. The report begins in the recognition of the unique place the University finds itself in being the "only reasearch-intensive and minority-serving flagship univesity in the United States" (pg. 1), and structures the goals for DEI around a principle of "excellence-and-equity" (ibid).
