In 2016, The Colorado State University Strategic Plan established diversity, equity, inclusion, and campus climate as a priority and defined goals that all parts of campus should work to accomplish. One of the many ways that these goals are being accomplished is through the creation of Diversity Strategic Plans by each college and division within the institution.

Visit any of the following links to view the Diversity Strategic Plan for each college/division:


The Office of Inclusive Excellence sponsors Institutional Diversity Strategic Plan matching mini-grants through a proposal process. $12,000 was dedicated to projects directly related to goals from divisional 2018-2019 Diversity Strategic Plans and supports eight $1000 and eight $500 matching grants.
