Diversity Action Plan

Task Force on Racial Justice

In 2020, Samford’s Task Force on Racial Justice was formed to assist the university in fostering positive, enduring changes in campus culture and existing systems so that racial justice may become a known attribute of the institution.

Diversity Action Plan

As a follow-up measure to the work of the Task Force on Racial Justice, Samford launched the Diversity Action Planning Committee (DAPC) in 2021. The committee was tasked with developing a plan to implement the recommendations of the Task Force’s final report to create a more durable and accountable process to implement the report’s recommendations.
