In the area of goal setting, all unit leaders in the college are asked to specify at least one unit-level diversity, equity, and inclusion goal, as well as a personal goal in this space.

All faculty and staff are asked to consider setting at least one diversity, equity, and inclusion goal on a voluntary basis for the current review cycle. This is now a required part of the annual goal setting process.


 All staff in the college are asked to set a goal in furtherance of the college strategic plan goal of expanding, diversifying, and supporting our community.

All staff performance reviews are completed in Workday. In addition to individual and organizational goals set in collaboration with individual managers, all staff will see the college cascading goal in their goal setting module and are asked to identify activities to advance this goal.

Goal added to Workday

Goal: Demonstrate support for the college strategic goal to expand, diversify, and support our community by identifying and carrying out one or more actions that contribute to support diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging.

Description: Support for diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging is demonstrated by:

  • Committing to understand the University and college goals related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, and identifying ways that your work impacts the success of these goals.
  • Engaging in activities that promote collaboration, knowledge sharing and mentoring, physical and emotional well-being, and improving workplace relationships and culture in both remote and on-site settings.
  • Finding opportunities to learn and grow the skills necessary to become culturally competent through accepting feedback, listening to the perspectives of others, and/or participating in trainings.
  • Welcoming ideas that are different than your own and supporting team members with varying views when working through tasks and projects.
  • Supporting HHD’s culture by actively participating in committees, professional development opportunities, and events that highlight our aspiration to be an organization rooted in the belief that it is the little things that matter.


In line with the goals of the HHD Strategic Plan, all faculty are asked to incorporate a diversity, equity, and inclusion goal in their goal setting. This can be accomplished through goal setting in teaching, research, service, or a combination of domains.

So many of our faculty and staff will find their own creative ways to set goals in this space, so you are encouraged to talk to your colleagues, your unit DEI committees, Faculty Senators, Staff Advisory Council members, and supervisors about the ways they are taking responsibility for this important work.
