Diversity Initiatives & Resources

The Office of the Provost enthusiastically supports the university’s diversity and inclusion mission and vision. Dedicated resources and initiatives promote success by fostering environments grounded in respect and inclusion for all members of TU’s campus community.   



Diversity & Inclusion Tool Kit


Based on Smith's (2015) work, diversity and inclusion include:

  • Education & Scholarship
  • Access & Success
  • Climate and Intergroup Relations
  • Institutional Viability & Vitality

Smith, D.G. (2015). Diversity's promise for higher education: Making it work., 2nd Ed. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins University Press.

This toolkit for diversity and inclusion was created to strive toward success in these areas by providing background knowledge in various diversity topics.  It is a work in progress and will continue to expand with additional resources over time.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the Provost Fellow for Diversity and Inclusion.
