In summer 2020, Eisgruber charged the University Cabinet -高级学术和行政领导-制定行动计划和项目,以解决365app手机版下载和其他地方系统性的种族主义.

“我要求我的同事考虑我们机构的各个方面——从我们的学术事业到日常运营——并制定促进种族歧视的具体策略 equity on campus and, in partnership with others, beyond our gates,” Eisgruber said. “从那时起, 学生, 教师, 教职员工和校友们聚在一起,努力解决有关前进道路的难题,并确定新的方式来打击种族主义和其他形式的仇恨.”

“Recognizing that holistic change does not happen through a few high-profile gestures, 每一位行政和学术领导都要为人口演变负责, inclusive climate and other systemic changes within their sphere of influence,” Minter said in her introduction to the report. “2020年9月宣布的全校承诺只是行政单位和学术部门承诺为支持种族平等而采取的数十项个人行动的一小部分.”
