Greetings from the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are proud to introduce Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, a new division that evolved from the work of the Equity Action Initiative (EAI); a call to action commissioned to help improve the climate for, and reality of equality, dignity, inclusion, and belonging. Bold measures designed to disrupt and root out any manifestations of racism, bigotry and implicit bias found, have been recommended to foster enhanced diversity, and inclusion for members of FIU's Black community as well as other groups who feel excluded from the fairness, opportunity and equal treatment called for, by our mission and values. While the urgent work is around addressing systemic racism and unconscious/conscious bias against Black people, the Division of DEI is committed to the full complement of diversity issues including but not limited to all minorities, women's issues, LGBTQ affairs, religious freedoms, differently-abled and generational diversity. We look excitedly forward to the great work our FIU will continue to do together, fueled by the fact that we are making history as we walk this journey of 'belonging'.
