Abstract The USAFA Diversity and Inclusion Plan is an action plan in direct support of the diversity and inclusive practice objectives cited above and contained within the USAFA Strategic Plan and USAFA Mission Partner (MP) Strategic Plans. The following plan describes many of the specific measures designed to enhance and develop diversity and foster inclusion across USAFA. It is divided into four sections and proposes a strategy of short and long term measurable initiatives. This action plan is the roadmap that addresses means of increasing, retaining, and sustaining diversity across USAFA. It provides the tactical-level plan for success by listing focus areas and measurable initiatives while specifying the process by which USAFA senior leadership can regularly monitor progress. As cited in President Obama s Executive Order (August 18, 2011), we must create a culture that encourages collaboration, flexibility, and fairness to enable individuals to participate to their full potential. Successfully increasing Air Force Academy diversity not only requires bringing more diverse candidates to USAFA but also requires establishing and maintaining programs focused on recruitment and retention of diverse faculty and staff; professional development of the faculty, staff, and cadets; continued and consistent efforts to create an inclusive organizational culture; and an integrated assessment process that allows senior leadership to monitor/measure the effectiveness and resourcing of diversity programs and initiatives.
