The University of Iowa’s 2019-2021 Excellence through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan, released in April 2019, outlines four broad goals supported by strategies and critical tasks. The Path Forward Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Collaboration committee is responsible for coordinating the implementation of the action plan, including forming workgroups, assigning tasks to specific organizational leaders, or aligning tasks with currently active committees. The updates below include progress on the critical tasks associated with each of the four goals, as well as the overall progress on plan implementation.
