Working closely with faculty and department administration, we have developed an open and self-improving workflow that directs our efforts. Specifically, by creating recurring and deliberate avenues through which to receive feedback and constructive criticisms, we have been able to identify weak spots and strengthen them by developing targeted programming, curricula, and administrative guidelines.
Conceptual workflow of actions focused on improving diversity, inclusion, and equity.
