Strategic Plan (2022 - 2027)


UMass Global and the Office of Equity and Inclusion are committed to providing an environment that is equitable and inclusive for every member of our university community. We firmly believe in upholding the dignity and rights of every student, staff, and faculty member, and fostering an environment that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, and cultural humility. This is essential for our collective growth, educational excellence, and advancement of knowledge, and it is a social responsibility that we take very seriously.

Our inaugural five-year Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) strategic planning and implementation process is a reflection of our commitment to building a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive present and future for our university community. Our ultimate goal is to create meaningful and long-lasting change at the organizational level while centering the cultural context of our community, both past and present
