Our inter-campus, cross-functional Council serves as an advisory and working group for coordination of the University's efforts in regard to inter-cultural competence, diversity and inclusion. Nominated faculty, staff and students must apply for membership terms ranging from one to three years. The Council meets monthly and is co-chaired by the executive director of diversity, equity and inclusion and by an identified faculty member. Additionally, each Council members serves on a DEI Council subcommittee: Academics, Data, Human Resources, Cultural Enggement Events, and Supplier Diversity.
How to Get Involved: To be considered for Council membership, you can self-nominate or be nominated by your peers or colleagues. Let us know of your interest by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and sharing why you would like to serve on the Council--what you hope to contribute and gain.
Please note: Due to the time commitment of attending monthly two-hour Council meetings and serving on a DEI subcommittee, supervisor's approval is required for all faculty and staff.
