Our Commitment to Resources for Equity through Antiracism, Training, Education, and Disruption (CREATED) initiative leads the Enrollment Management and Student Success (EMSS) portfolio’s ongoing, sustained, and future efforts to weave diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work into our jobs, keeping in mind that this work elevates the work we do in service to students, families, and the university community at large.
Our goal is for everything we do to be modeled in, supported through, and measured by our commitment and framing of the work from an anti-racist, diversity, equity, and inclusion lens.
