Strategic Initiative One

Foster an intentional community committed to excellence, innovation, engagement, integrity, and inclusiveness.

Everyone in the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences is part of a mission-focused community. A sense of mutual belonging and contribution to the greater good is rooted in DU's values of excellence, innovation, engagement, integrity, and inclusiveness. As One DU, the University is committed to fostering an intentional community that endures, and we intend to make the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences an exemplary model of community.

Achieving our aims for critical thinking, ethical decision making, and effective engagement will be impossible if we do not wholeheartedly embrace inclusive excellence. We see first-hand the educational, artistic, and scholarly advantages of diversity, and we also know there is profoundly important work to be done to infuse inclusive excellence into everything we do. We place a high priority on expanding diversity by supporting the hiring, retention, and development of faculty and staff from historically underrepresented groups.  Read the plan
