In an email Monday, the four university chancellors and interim president of the UM System acknowledged that they “face challenges,” and announced work on an audit to “examine and create a comprehensive assessment and inventory of diversity, equity, and inclusion policies, practices, programs, and procedures across the University of Missouri System.”

The UM System is partnering with the IBIS Consulting Group, and says this group will look objectively at diversity and inclusion policies, analyzing existing programs and initiatives as well as proposing new ones to help the system keep pace with the diversity efforts being implemented at other universities.

The email states that this initiative will be “building on the good work happening at each campus” in an effort to “provide future generations with a stronger and more vibrant university community.”
