In his fall 2021 State of the University address, President Christopher Callahan boldly shared our 10-year goal, “Pacific will become the best student-centric, comprehensive university in the U.S.” To realize this charge, this session will focus on how Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) drives policy, innovation and student success within American higher education and how Pacific will reach its goal through DEI efforts.
