What We Do

How the committee is working is to advance diversity

In support of the strategic plan, to include monitoring and enhancing the curriculum, diversity climate, and recruitment and retention throughout the campus, the committee makes recommendations to the President and Board of Trustees via the Office of the Provost.

The committee works with academic units and other administrative offices to coordinate and promote activities in furthering its goals, including:

  • Engaging students, faculty, and staff in meaningful dialogue on the topics of diversity and inclusion
  • Engaging students, faculty and staff in the process of inclusion
  • Reviewing existing policies on recruitment and retention of students, faculty, and staff of color
  • Evaluating opportunities to improve the campus climate through curricular initiatives and institutional change including bridging the gap between Student Affairs and academic units
  • Providing technical assistance in developing a comprehensive diversity plan
  • Serving as a resource to infuse diversity throughout the curriculum
  • Evaluating the mission of the Diversity Committee.

Committee representatives share information and work with their constituencies to address issues, build bridges, and solve problems.

The committee also assists in addressing problems that are brought to its attention by individuals or groups. In order to cultivate a climate that values and supports the University’s Core Values related to diversity, any student, faculty or staff member may contact a representative of the committee to find information and resources, get assistance with promoting initiatives related to diversity, and get direction on how to resolve a concern. In some cases, the committee will deliberate what action(s) to take and refer the matter to the appropriate office, department, or individual, based on existing University policy.
