The University of Michigan-Flint is bringing together students, faculty, staff, and administrators from across the University to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus.

The University launched its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee in December 2019, and the members are now creating short- and long-term goals in a multi-faceted action plan for UM-Flint.

Faculty from each school and college, each university division, faculty and staff councils, the undergraduate and graduate student bodies, and the Provost’s Office comprise the committee. Interim Campus Diversity Officer and Director of the Intercultural Center Dr. David Luke and Professor of English and Director of the Master of Arts program in Liberal Studies Dr. Jan Furman are co-chairing the committee. They will report the committee’s progress to Chancellor Deba Dutta and the UM-Flint Cabinet.
