Achievements in diversity have focused on the 13 diversity goals designed to achieve our Campus Vision For Diversity. Since 2004 our focus toward doubling diversity has been to strengthen the campus wide commitment and leadership through the distribution of best practices via annual campus conferences on diversity and the establishment of a "Good Works" resource of all the good diversity work occurring at IUPUI. Additionally we have continued to focus and improve our approach to assessment, planning and performance measurement which garnered a 2006 City of Indianapolis Mayors Award.
