President Peter Salovey on Oct. 14 announced nine actions to enhance diversity, promote equity on campus, and foster an environment in which all community members feel welcome, included, and respected.

The initial commitments, which represent the next phase of the Belonging at Yale initiative, include a project to study Yale’s historical intersections with slavery, additional mentoring for new faculty, a new multidisciplinary Center for Law and Racial Justice, more funding for student financial aid, and a new program to encourage diversity in Yale’s senior leadership.
