As part of the Diversity Action Plan (DAP) initiative, the Division of Diversity and Engagement (DDE) has established a DAP Implementation Committee with its campus partners.
The purpose of this group is to implement measures to improve the overall campus climate, foster a culture of assessment and accountability, create a space where representatives from each college and Vice Chancellor unit can receive regular feedback on diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, and encourage greater collaboration across campus.
DDE is committed to continue to work alongside deans and vice chancellors as they implement their Diversity Action Plans and support ongoing accountability in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion in their respective areas. This collaborative effort will help transform the university climate and culture and will make UT a place in which all Vols matter and belong.
