Strategic Plan


At the heart of the DDCE strategic plan are four goals, around which most of the content of this site is organized:

Campus Culture: Advancing efforts to create an inclusive, accessible and welcoming culture on campus

Community Engagement: Cultivating mutually beneficial community-university partnerships that further the mission of UT to serve Texas and beyond, with an emphasis on historically and currently underserved communities

Education pipelineCreating a successful pathway for first-generation and underrepresented students as they progress from pre-K through graduate and professional school

Research: Serving as a national model for the creation of knowledge about and best practices for diversity and community engagement through innovative scholarship, teaching, policy development, programs and services

Truly a division-wide effort, this bold new plan guides the division's staff in the pursuit of their highest aspirations toward achieving academic diversity, campus diversity, and community engagement.  Throughout the implementation of this five-year plan, DDCE will continue to foster a culture of excellence via its partnerships with UT's academic colleges and schools, other university administrative divisions and units, and individuals and organizations across the state of Texas.  The work of DDCE is central to the mission of The University of Texas at Austin.
