Leading Through Excellence
The School of Data Science views its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion as mission-central and integral to the institution's overall future success and has published its first Inclusive Excellence Plan (2023-2026). It aligns with the University of Virginia’s adoption of the Inclusive Excellence framework as a means of supporting its diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging efforts. The model for organizational change — which holds DEI as critical to achieving excellence — is being incorporated at each school and embedded throughout the UVA 2030 Plan. It makes use of 5 pillars: Access + Success, Climate + Intergroup Relations, Education + Scholarship, Infrastructure Investment, and Community + Partnership. The School of Data Science Inclusive Excellence Plan is not meant to be comprehensive but is a living document intended to build out the foundations of future work.
