3 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity Message from the President The University of La Verne values diversity. Our University Mission Statement and Core Values emphasize diversity. Across campus, especially over the past semester, the university has discussed diversity and ways to enhance diversity-related activities for our community. Further, in our recent WASC review and exit interview, the theme of diversity was considered and critiqued. WASC visiting team members commended the university on the diversity of our student body and the success of those students but challenged us as an institution to develop more proactive and lasting plans for addressing diversity in all aspects of community life. Because our students will live and work in a diverse world, it is important for our university to have a clear plan to ensure an inclusive learning community. Universities should expose students to a variety of perspectives and experiences, and research shows that the highest quality education is provided in the context of a diverse learning environment. Given this, I am pleased to announce that the President s Working Group on Diversity has prepared an initial Strategic Plan for Diversity for the University. This plan will work in synchrony with the University Mission Statement and the broader University Strategic Plan and will specifically identify ways in which we can enhance diversity within the University. This first draft of the diversity strategic plan outlines broad goals as well as specific, measureable objectives and initiatives to be undertaken. Specific recommendations have been made to advance the state of diversity and diversity-related services on campus. This document is intended to provide a broad overview of the initiatives to be considered over time. Given the scope of this job, the committee has also taken initial steps to consider priorities which might be acted upon in a more urgent fashion. To facilitate the use of this document, the intersection of the University s broad mission and Diversity Vision statement is presented, an executive summary of the plan is provided, recommended priorities to be acted upon within the first year of implementation pulled from the overall plan are highlighted, and then the complete Strategic Plan for Diversity is presented. As members of the University of La Verne Community, I and members of the Working Group welcome your feedback on the proposed goals, objectives, and initiatives. Feedback from the community is vital for a shared vision of diversity. Our hope is that the University Strategic Plan for Diversity will be a living document to which all can contribute. As a community we seek a blueprint to advance the University both in the immediate and long-term. We invite you to read through this document and then attend one of the planned public forums for providing feedback. I and members of the working group also welcome your individual feedback. We look forward to the participation of the full community in the continued development of this document. Stephen Morgan President

5 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity Executive Summary A strategic diversity plan for the University of La Verne is presented that addresses the imperatives of a sustained diversity initiative. This plan is comprehensive in that it confronts issues of diversity within the ranks of students, faculty and staff, emphasizes the empowerment of a culture of diversity for both scholarship and the learning experience and explores how the university interfaces with a broader, diverse community. This document contains several interconnected parts. First, we present our existing Mission and Values Statement. When considering the vision and motivation for a diversity strategic plan, these statements remind us that a commitment to diversity is already engendered in who we are. For a practical grounding, a definition of diversity is presented. In this document, we avoid a laundry list of identities and rather opt for a functional, active definition. From this definition, we assert core values of diversity that align with the university s mission statement. These values are: The University is a forum for diverse points of view The University is in service to our diverse population The University seeks to educate individuals to live in a diverse community These values are consequences of the mission statement for diversity put forth as: The University of La Verne is committed to providing a quality, personalized education experience for leadership and participation in a diverse society to a student population that reflects the full diversity of this country. This commitment is achieved through creating a climate that supports diversity, social justice and sensitivity to global interdependence. The University will engage our students, faculty, staff and the broader external community to achieve this campus climate. The early actions of the strategic plan are then presented in a list of prioritized initiatives for These eight initiatives are a call for immediate action in implementing the diversity plan. Finally, we provide, in bulleted format, the goals, objectives, and initiatives of the strategic plan for diversity. These goals are: Goal 1. Create a welcoming campus climate Goal 2. Recruit and retain a diverse student body Goal 3. Recruit and retain a diverse faculty, staff, and administration Goal 4. Ensure that curriculum supports and reflects the goals of diversity Goal 5. Create an organizational structure to support diversity goals Goal 6. Foster, promote and support research on diversity Goal 7. Engage the broader external community in diversity-related work

6 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity Mission University Mission, Diversity Definition, and Diversity Core Values at La Verne The university s mission statement states: It is the mission of the University of La Verne to provide opportunities for students to achieve their educational goals and become contributing citizens to the global community. This is accomplished by offering high quality degree programs to both traditional-aged and adult learners; providing liberal arts and professional programs from undergraduate to doctoral levels; and delivering programs to students at the central La Verne campus as well as regional campuses and satellite class locations throughout California. The university provides a student-centered, values-based, and diverse learning environment. It takes pride in offering small class sizes in a highly personalized setting. The University encourages effective teaching, research, scholarly contributions, and service to the greater community by sharing its academic, professional, and individual resources. The University of La Verne shares four core values that promote a positive and rewarding life for its students through fostering a genuine appreciation and respect for: A Values Orientation. The University affirms a philosophy of life that actively supports peace with justice, the health of the planet and its people. Therefore, in light of this affirmation, it encourages students to become reflective about personal, professional, and societal values. It also encourages values-based ethical behavior. Community and diversity. The University promotes the goal of community within a context of diversity. Therefore, it encourages students to understand and appreciate the diversity of cultures that exists locally, nationally, and internationally. It also seeks to promote appreciation and preservation of biodiversity by helping students understand the impact/dependence of human beings on their environment. Lifelong learning. The University commits itself to promoting education that facilitates lifelong learning. Therefore, it teaches students how to learn, to think critically, to do constructive research, and to access and integrate information in order to prepare them for continued personal and career growth. Community service. The University believes that personal service is a primary goal of the educated person. Therefore, it encourages students to experience the responsibilities and rewards of serving the human and ecological community. ****** A discussion about what is meant by the concept of diversity at the University of La Verne seems a necessary starting place for any conversation on this topic.

7 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity Diversity Definition Diversity is an active and intentional commitment to support and embrace difference and multiplicity for the sake of expanding knowledge, educating capable citizens, developing the whole person, and serving our local and global communities. Promoting and sustaining diversity is a commitment to educational quality, social justice, and the creation of positive, respectful communities. Diversity means more than just acknowledging and/or tolerating difference. Diversity is a set of conscious practices that involve: Understanding and appreciating the interdependence of humanity, cultures, and the natural environment. Practicing mutual respect for qualities and experiences that are different from our own. Understanding that diversity includes not only ways of being but also ways of knowing; Recognizing that personal, cultural and institutionalized discrimination creates and sustains privileges for some while creating and sustaining disadvantages for others; Addressing practices that perpetuate discrimination and unfair treatment while also instituting other practices that support diversity and diverse people. Building alliances across differences so that we can work together to eradicate all forms of discrimination. Academic excellence depends upon an intellectual environment and campus climate that affirms the practices listed above. Diversity plays a critical role in the integrity and intellectual strength of an educational institution. It is through the open exchange of different beliefs, knowledge, experiences, and values that individuals can freely learn, explore, innovate, flourish, and develop the critical thinking skills that will serve them through their life. Diversity allows the campus community to create and share knowledge in a safe, accepting, and nurturing environment. Diversity ensures a pluralistic academic community where teaching, learning, and living occurs in an atmosphere of mutual respect in the pursuit of academic excellence. ***** A commitment to diversity is explicit in the university s mission and values. The purpose of this document is to identify specific core diversity values that are consistent with this mission and to identify a strategic plan to achieve these values. Core Diversity Values The following core values for diversity are asserted. The University is a forum for diverse points of view. One of the missions of a university is to be a forum for the presentation and examination of diverse points of view that is free from political, social and economic pressures. An important component of this is promoting personal growth and a healthy society by challenging stereotyped preconceptions through critical thinking. Academic freedom is the cornerstone of this mission. To fulfill this mission, a university must create an environment supportive of diversity through the engagement and active participation of faculty, students and staff. This forum is particularly beneficial to the student as it promotes critical thinking and analysis from a variety of perspectives.

8 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity Service to our diverse population. The student population at the University of La Verne has become a population that, for the most part, mirrors the diversity of California. The diversity of this population is valued and the University will maintain and cultivate our current student profile. To better achieve this, it must create a campus climate more supportive of diversity. It is important for the university community to enhance the opportunities for all members of our community to fully participate in society. Educating individuals to live in a diverse community. Society is increasingly global and multicultural. Our educational mission requires that our students be comfortable shaping and participating in diverse and multicultural environments and are sensitive to the dynamics of human interactions. The enduring values of human dignity and social justice, a legacy of our founding vision, provide an important moral compass for our educational experience. Diversity Mission Statement ***** The University of La Verne is committed to providing a quality, personalized educational experience for leadership and participation in a diverse society to a student population that reflects the full diversity of this country. This commitment is achieved through creating a climate that supports diversity, social justice, and sensitivity to global interdependence. The University will engage our students, faculty, staff, and the broader external community to achieve this climate.

9 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity Prioritized Initiatives for Given the broad scope of the Strategic Plan for Diversity, and the time and resources that will be required for implementation of the full plan, the following initiatives have been prioritized for immediate action. 1. In support of creating an organizational structure to support diversity goals, and therefore to facilitate the achievement of all other planned goals, it is recommended that a first priority be the creation of the post of Chief Diversity Officer for Equity and Diversity, reporting to the President and Provost, with the appropriate support resources and authority to promote diversity and hold units accountable for their performance. Execution of this initiative will require deliberate conversations about the nature of this position, development of a job description (including the responsibilities and resources to be made available to the CDO), identification and collection of necessary financial resources to allow the CDO to be successful, and a national search to hire a qualified individual. 2. To ensure success of the strategic plan, the President should ensure that appropriate funds are allocated to the specified diversity initiatives both in and on an ongoing basis. 3. To ensure that students, faculty, staff and administration experience the benefits of a university setting in which diversity is celebrated and welcomed, efforts should begin immediately to develop a shared vision of the university s goals for diversity. The forums and discussions regarding the Strategic Plan for Diversity will allow one mechanism for the development of such a shared vision. Additional forums for discussion and exploration of such ideas, academic, co-curricular, and procedural, should also be conducted. 4. To maintain and further enhance the experiences of students at the University, the support services available to students, especially our first generation and ethnically diverse students, should be expanded. Additional staff (e.g., in the Office of Multicultural Services), resources, and programming for students should be provided. 5. To address the role that administrators can play in enhancing the campus climate, improving the recruitment and retention of diverse students and faculty, and foster a curriculum and scholarship consistent with diversity goals, it is recommended that a training program specifically for Deans and other upper administrative personnel be offered. If space is available, Department and Program Chairs might also be included in such a training. An expert on diversity trainings and facilitation of diversity initiatives within university settings should be sought for such training.

10 DRAFT Strategic Plan for Diversity To improve the representation of diversity faculty, staff, and administration, it is recommended that the University develop a human resources procedure for insuring that diversity-related initiatives are followed during the hiring process for all hires, in coordination with, and with oversight by, the CDO. Previously, a volunteer diversity advocate training program was developed such that search committees wishing to have a member representing such positions would have an available pool of potential committee members. It is recommended that a more in-depth certification program for potential diversity advocates be developed, with more intensive training about ways that members could intervene and cooperate with search committees to facilitate the goal of increasing the representation of diverse faculty, staff, and administrators. Diversity advocates from among the staff and administration would be trained and a diversity advocate would be required for each hiring decision (with a staff advocate serving for searches of staff positions, a faculty advocate serving for searches of faculty positions, and the CDO serving as the advocate for senior administrative searches). 7. To engage the broader external community in diversity-work, it is recommended that a Community Advisory Board on Diversity, consisting of prominent leaders from the broader community, be created to provide an external voice that will ensure that the university s diversity initiatives are informed by the issues arising in the community. Ways to foster interactions between faculty and staff and this Board (including inclusion of such individuals within the Board constitution) should also be considered. 8. To ensure success of the broad Strategic Plan on Diversity, a time line for the implementation of additional initiatives should be developed. This would likely be coordinated by the CDO in consultation with faculty, students, staff, and administration. 9. To ensure success of the broad Strategic Plan on Diversity, a series of benchmarks that can be assessed and review quarterly and/or annually should be developed. Further, the assessment and evaluation of progress in each of these benchmarked areas should begin within this first year. Such benchmarks may include indices of student access and success (e.g., student demographics and success statistics), climate (e.g., student, staff, faculty satisfaction), curriculum, and institutional viability (e.g., staff and faculty diversity, hiring, turnover).
