Slash a graduation rate gap between students of color and their white classmates. Boost recruitment of underrepresented students and faculty. Train students and employees to appreciate diversity and be culturally competent.

Those are among the University of Minnesota's aggressive five-year diversity goals, which were discussed by the Board of Regents on Thursday. Administrators and regents also examined ongoing initiatives they hope will propel the university to meet these targets by 2025.

"Robust efforts are in place across the university on every campus to ensure that our education is accessible and to recruit and attract students that will shape a student body that reflects the rich diversity of our state," said U Provost Rachel Croson.
