The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Action Plan Committee calls for submissions

The Saint Anselm College

Diversity Equity & Inclusion Action Plan Committee wants to hear from YOU!

Background on the action plan:
President Favazza states that diversity is a key part of college’s Vision 2025 strategic plan.
President Favazza appointed and charged a committee to develop a DEI Action Plan to recommend actions
to advance the college.
Over 30 members of the community have contributed to the DEI Action Plan since the start of this school
year (this includes faculty, staff, current students, a recent graduate and member of the monastic community).
President Favazza sent a letter to campus on April 8. The letter invited the entire community to review and
offer feedback on the draft action plan.
Key points from the action plan:
Compositional diversity1 on a campus is necessary but not sufficient,

The plan is organized around 4 main areas (EDUCATION, ACCESS, COMMUNITY, AND WORK-
FORCE) plus the infrastructure to support them.

Timeline: We are currently in Phase 1 of the Action Plan and developing Phase 2 to run through the 2022-
2023 school year
Next Steps for the action plan:
The draft DEI Action Plan and feedback form are now available on the college
My Anselm portal under the “Office for Diversity & Inclusion” tab.
Now is the time to voice your ideas and suggestions. Fill out the feedback form TODAY!
