The principal vision of this report is found in Recommendation #2: In order for the University
system to achieve its goal of becoming one of the top three public research universities in the
world, the University must re-align institutional priorities and accountability measures with
diversity as the priority for the University system, and not just a priority. To achieve this goal,
recommendation #3 states: The President’s Office and all senior administrators, including deans
and department heads, must articulate a systemwide vision of diversity that includes specific
goals tailored to each campus or unit, as well as a clear plan for implementation, resources, and
accountability. As Recommendation #7 states, this vision should guide “every unit and every
person across the system [to] understand that diversity is their responsibility.”
