The decade from 1991 to 2001 saw a number of new initiatives to support diversity on campus.

The Chancellorís Commission on Pluralism
This group issued a comprehensive report on the campus climate as it relates to diversity.

The Chancellorís Advisory Committee on Diversity
This committee was formed to provide the Chancellor with advice and counsel on policy issues related to diversity.

The Office of Admissions
The office strengthened its recruitment efforts among under-represented students, particularly through the appointment of an assistant director for diversity recruitment.

Minority and female representation among new hires in the past six years is proportionally greater than for the workforce as a whole.

The Introduction of Random Residence Life Assignments
For new undergraduate students, this initiative increases the number of opportunities students have to meet and form friendships with people whose ethnic backgrounds differ from their own.

Faculty and Staff Recruitment Efforts
This initiative was enhanced through increased funding for search processes and by making recruitment a high priority in supervisor and manager evaluations.

Pilot Campus-Wide Diversity Training Program
For staff members, this program will become an integral part of employment at Syracuse University.

The Office 0f Multicultural Affairs
This office was created to address the needs of students of color and to support diversity in campus life.
