number of diversity initiatives across the country and have conducted climate studies on campuses enough to know that final reports typically contain a balance of “bright spots” and areas that need attention. Our role is to convey our general observations, respond to questions about diversity issues, and provide some realistic recommendations based on the IUPUI context. Our observations may or may not resonate with particular groups on campus, and therefore the Diversity Cabinet may need to balance the "external ” and “internal ” views of IUPUI in setting its goals for diversity. The urban location of IUPUI and its evolving history present both a great challenge and tremendous opportunity for a research institution. We seek to address both the challenges, as we see them, and the opportunities to achieve the university’s aspirations to excellence and diversity
