The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) leads and supports a variety of university-wide initiatives and guides policy at the enterprise level focused on recruitment and retention of a broadly diverse student body, faculty, and staff, and on fostering the type of inclusive and equitable community at the University of Michigan that is essential to our university’s academic excellence mission.

ODEI’s mission is to serve as a leader, partner, and resource for our U-M campus community, working with our schools/colleges and campus units to implement and support the use of values-driven, evidence-informed approaches and practices that enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion– across our campus, in partnership with local communities, and at national and global levels. This mission is grounded in a vision of U-M impacting the world through providing an intellectually and culturally diverse university community where all have the opportunity to thrive and excel and to use their talents to make societal impacts.
