Strategic Plans

Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs Diversity Strategic Plan was drafted in 2016 and offers a vision of our school that centers on diversity.

Definitional statement

In a four-year effort, the DEIC sought ideas and feedback to help us define what diversity, equity, and inclusion mean for the Marxe School. After receiving feedback from both faculty and staff, our IDEA Statement: Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in Academia statement was approved by our faculty in 2020.  In defining what these terms mean for our Marxe Community, we are able to set clear goals for creating a more equitable climate.


The DEIC reports regularly on the demographic diversity of our school as well as the efforts made to make the school more equitable.

Workplan and other documents

Diversity Committee Workplan 2020-2021: Our committee created this ambitious workplan for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Diversity Committee Request to Baruch College for Pay Equity Study: As part of our workplan, we made official requests to the college to conduct a pay equity study.

Diversity Committee Request to the CUNY DEI Advisory Council requesting better data on diversity. As per our workplan, we submitted this official request on March 29, 2021.


In the summer of 2020, over 70 Marxe Faculty and Staff signed this statement of solidarity and purpose in support of the protests over the murder of Black people in the U.S.  We hope our efforts at DEI match the commitment in this statement.
