LSI Learning Spaces for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The LSI regularly hosts internal discussion groups to advance our communal understanding of and action toward improved diversity, equity and inclusion. The Learning Spaces community provides a welcoming, learning-centered and action-oriented environment to consider myriad topics related to DEI, using relevant books, articles, podcasts and videos as a jumping-off point for conversation.

Highlights from DEI 1.0

View our DEI 1.0 efforts toward creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive climate that fosters success for all community members.

The five-year implementation of U-M’s DEI 1.0 strategic initiative resulted in many new policies, practices, activities and other efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion at the LSI. In this document, we highlight these efforts across time to help the LSI community understand what work has been done and to help our forward trajectory in DEI 2.0. Many of the LSI’s efforts toward building a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment were catalyzed by the individuals and groups within the LSI that were already doing this important work, and we look forward to partnering with members of the LSI community to continue and build on our collective efforts in ways that foster diversity, equity and inclusion at the LSI.
