We are pleased to announce on behalf of the Diversity Strategic Thinking and Planning (DSTP) Committee that the draft Diversity Strategic Plan: A Mosaic for UIC Transformation is available for campus review and discussion.

A Mosaic for UIC Transformation is a working draft, campus-wide, collaborative product that is the culmination of over three years of work.  The plan represents the final phase of the DSTP process and is a mosaic of interconnected goals and actions with the overall purpose of integrating diversity throughout all levels and activities of the campus.

We welcome your comments on the working draft, which is available at the DSTP Web site: www.uic.edu/depts/oaa/diversity_planning.  A response form and e-mail address are located on the Web site for your use in submitting comments.
