PHASE I: 1999 - 2003
Following the adoption of Plan 2008, each UW System institution developed an individualized institutional diversity plan focusing on race, ethnicity and economic disadvantage. The Plan’s ten-year time horizon was divided into two five-year segments allowing institutions the flexibility to respond to their unique experiences, student demographics, and campus climates, as well as to ever-changing social, economic and legal environments.
During the first phase of the Plan, the UW System Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) worked with the institutions to help facilitate the implementation of their individual plans. EDI presented its first major report on Plan 2008 to the Board of Regents in fall 2001. In 2004, EDI followed with another Report to the Board, “Diversity: A Wisconsin Commitment, An American Imperative,” a mid-point review and assessment outlining institutional and System progress during the first five years of Plan 2008, as well as the challenges that remained.
