In a beloved community, all members are working together, and are heard, respected, and valued.

The School of Arts and Sciences Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee is working with Dr. Hazel-Anne Johnson-Marcus, Senior Director for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion, Division of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement, Rutgers–New Brunswick to implement the strategic planning process put in place by Enobong (Anna) Branch, Senior Vice President for Equity in the Rutgers University Office of Equity and Inclusion.

As laid out in the Strategic Planning Toolkit every organizational unit should complete a diversity action plan to align organizational unit goals with the university priorities. The SAS Committee will be following these guidelines and will be updating this page and the SAS community with the steps of the process and opportunities for engagement and to give input.

The diversity strategic planning process is designed to help units:

• Shape strategies for recruiting, retaining, and developing a diverse community of students, staff, and faculty.

• Expand curriculum to promote understanding of diversity and equity within academic disciplines and reflect community engagement.

• Adopt culturally inclusive teaching practices that center students’ backgrounds, experiences, and cultural/linguistic frames of reference as well as the experiences of indigenous and other marginalized communities.

• Deepen relationships to the surrounding community through partnership development with existing organizations and creating opportunities for employee/student engagement.

• Hone leadership capacity to build and sustain an inclusive climate that actively mitigates inequity.
