Each year the IC leadership team identifies objectives that move us forward with respect to achieving the goals of our strategic plan, IC 20/20.  The identification of objectives related to our diversity goals receives special attention because those objectives are the shared responsibility of everyone on the leadership team and for that matter everyone on campus.  For that reason I thought you might be interested in seeing the IC diversity objectives for the academic year ahead.  The President’s Council has consulted with the President’s Advisory Committee on Diversity (PAC-D) in formulating these objectives.  As always it will be the task of the PAC-D to monitor our performance on these objectives.
