Welcome to the University of Michigan’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategic Planning Toolkit

This online resource highlights information and insights from U-M’s DEI Strategic Planning and Implementation process. We invite you to watch the below video introducing the toolkit.

The toolkit represents U-M’s own efforts to share its model, as well as what has been learned by implementing this plan to the larger community—as many institutions of higher learning are striving to create their own DEI strategic plans.

Included on this page are a set of individual guides that cover key steps and processes involved in creating and sustaining an organization-wide DEI plan that may be adapted to your own environment, including foundational components and signature initiatives.
