Provost Bendapudi convened a group of campus leaders to review the DEI report and its recommendations over the summer. This group was tasked with presenting a report to the Provost of what actions had been taken historically, what actions were in-progress, and what new steps we could take to move the needle as it relates to truly addressing issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Provost Bendapudi used the information collected by this group to frame her response and to inform the actions that the Office of the Provost will take to impact our campus climate.
