DEI Strategic Plan
The challenges and opportunities of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are interwoven into the fabric of the University of Michigan (U-M) over its over 200-year history, one that has shown an uncommon leadership in its commitment to higher education access, equity, and positive cultural change.
The University of Michigan is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe people. In 1817, the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewadami Nations made the largest single land transfer to the University of Michigan. This was ceded ceremonially through the Treaty at the Foot of the Rapids so that their children could be educated. Through these words of acknowledgment, the nations’ contemporary and ancestral ties to the land and their contributions to the University are renewed and reaffirmed.
