D&I Task Force

The task force will deliver on three tasks

Activity Inventory

The task force will inventory the current diversity and inclusion activities and efforts within the Luddy School. It will examine the inventory through the lens of the broader landscape of activities within IU and beyond while identifying opportunities and gaps.

Luddy BPC Research Harness

An NSF CISE directorate is expanding the solicitations containing the requirement that proposals include a well-grounded and broadened participation plan. The proposed research harness is a framework for faculty to utilize broader programming in their BPC plans.

School Plan for Diversity and Inclusion

The Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence is a school-wide plan creating goals for the school as a whole and individual departments as well as laying out milestones to track achievement toward the continuation of a diverse and inclusive Luddy School.
