The charter or mission statement of the committee or a brief description of the committee's purview and activities :

Arizona State University is deeply committed to positioning itself as a New American University by seeking to build excellence, enhance access, and have an impact on our community, state, nation and the world. This requires that our faculty and staff reflect the intellectual, ethnic and cultural diversity of our nation and world so that our students learn from the broadest perspectives. We engage in the advancement of knowledge with the most inclusive understanding possible of the issues we are addressing through our scholarship. As one part of this commitment, we have developed a strategic plan for diversity. Developed in consultation with a wide variety of constituencies within the University and the deans, this plan, called “Building blocks for success through people, programming and policies,” contains a statement which serves as an ongoing touchstone of our commitment. It includes several specific initiatives which will change and evolve over time depending on the challenges and opportunities we have before us.
