Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

UMTRI is committed to building a more inclusive and supportive environment that will welcome people of all identities. We are striving to ensuring our environment is one that celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusion for everyone. We maintain a list of resources to improve DEI at DEI.umtri.umich.edu.

There are many ways to make your voice heard. Contact one of the designated people listed below to share your questions, concerns, or suggestions. Remember that some people are required to report instances of harassment or other forms of misconduct; these individuals are labeled “Mandatory reporter.” The others are labeled “Not a mandatory reporter.”

To speak with a confidential resource outside the department who does not have reporting obligations, please contact the University Ombuds at 734-763–3545, Staff Ombuds Office at 734-936-0600, or the Office of Faculty Ombuds at 734-763-2707. 

Thank you for helping strengthen our community!
