UW Diversity Plan at age 10

Deborah Ziff:

It’s been 10 years since the UW System launched its major diversity initiative — Plan 2008 — and in that time administrators have successfully recruited hundreds of students of color and faculty to come to UW-Madison.
In that same 10 years, UW-Madison has made news for photoshopping a photo of a black student into a crowd of white students on a brochure and for a law school professor’s remarks about the Hmong that some considered racist.
Now in the plan’s final year, the numbers of minorities at the state’s flagship have been stubbornly budging upward, but students and administrators say there is still more work to be done, especially when it comes to creating a welcoming campus environment for people of color.
