The new website came about after the release in April of the university’s Diversity Strategic Plan. Robert S. Feldman, deputy chancellor of the University of Massachusetts, stated that “the plan calls for greater communication to different constituencies involved with diversity, equity and inclusion, and the website serves that purpose. In addition, we wanted to provide a site where students, faculty or staff who had experienced issues or have grievances involving diversity of all sorts could find an easy way to determine who to go to in order to communicate the issue to the appropriate university office.”
