Identifying and Dismantling Racial Injustice Task Force

Inclusive Excellence Plan Update for September 2022

The Purple Eagle Inclusive Excellence Plan represents work that started with Niagara University’s 2020 Identifying and Dismantling Racial Injustice Task Force. In its June 2020 report, that task force called upon University leadership to take immediate and thoughtful actions that create meaningful change within the Niagara University community and lead to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive (DEI) environment for all. One of the 22 recommendations was to “construct a new sector of DEI with resources and personnel, headed by a Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.” Recognizing the immediacy and importance of the moment, University leaders acted upon the recommendation and set in motion the process that resulted in the plan.
