Every academic and administrative unit at Brown was called upon to submit a Departmental Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan (DDIAP) aligned with the University's set of concrete actions for meeting diversity and inclusion goals. Requiring departmental action plans was a specific action step of Pathways to Diversity and Inclusion: An Action Plan for Brown University (the DIAP).
Departments submit an annual update detailing their progress toward the goals of their DDIAPs. These reports are reviewed by a committee convened by the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity. Departments receive feedback on what works well and areas for continued improvement.
