One U Thriving is the platform by which Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) communicates the vision of the University for equity, diversity and inclusion (and belonging) and where we will ensure students, faculty and staff feel a sense of belonging and have a voice to help bring about racial healing and transformation, respond to racist and bias incidents and help to shape our journey as we achieve the goal of an anti-racist, diverse, inclusive and equitable campus.
One U Thriving Committees
Building upon President Watkins’ vision for the future of One U, and united in serving the people of Utah and the nation as a flagship institution at the forefront of scientific research and innovation, EDI launched One U Thriving as a synergistic approach in developing methods to achieve inclusion and equity on throughout the University.
One U Thriving is supported by a steering committee with four teams:
The Steering Committee leads the efforts and initiatives from One U Thriving and meet quarterly with the One U Thriving committee chairs.
The Anti-Racism Committee advises the Steering Committee on the overall campus climate regarding issues and events of racism across all intersections of identity and bias.
Universal Design & Access Committee
The Universal Design & Access Committee advises the Steering Committee on policies and procedures affecting campus community members and visitors, including, but not restricted to, persons with disabilities relative to employment, educational opportunities, and accessibility.
Racist and Bias Incident Response Team
The Racist and Bias Incident Response Team oversees the creation, implementation, and long-term success of university protocols, programs, and processes in order to provide appropriate and calculated responses to incidents involving bias and racism at the university.
