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

This school-wide plan will define the diversity and inclusion goals of the school and departments, and it will examine the earlier plan of the school (circa 2008) and update it. Programmatic assessment is critical to know which diversity and inclusion activities can have the largest impact. Recommendations on a strategy for assessment services, and on potential high-impact pilots, are part of the purview of the task.
