Delaware Law Announces New Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


The Delaware Law School is adopting a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Plan that was unanimously approved by the Law Faculty on October 22, 2020.

“In my official role as Dean I whole-heartedly embrace and endorse the Delaware Law School’s adoption of a new Strategic Plan addressing matters relating to diversity and Race,” writes Dean Rod Smolla in a personal note on race and diversity.

Highlights of the new strategic plan include the creation of a new Standing Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the enhancement of diversity and equity related curriculum and course offerings, the creation of an admissions pipeline to promote diversity in Delaware Law admissions and the legal profession, and the hiring of an Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

“I am personally committed to advancing the cause of increasing the diversity of the legal profession. This is an urgent priority for lawyers and judges across the United States, including America’s law schools. It is an urgent priority for the Delaware Law School,” Smolla adds.
