Equity, Inclusion & Justice Committee
The Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Committee exists to represent marginalized or otherwise underrepresented student groups, respond and make proactive efforts toward preventing hate and bias-related incidents, and protect and promote the diverse identities and ideologies on campus, acknowledging and providing what student unions, student organizations, academic departments, extracurriculars, and the ASLC otherwise cannot. Previously known as the Diversity Committee, in Fall 2019, the committee changed its name to better align with the L&C Strategic plan to become the Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Committee.
The Committee is compromised of Student Confidants that serve as anonymous, communicative outlets for members of the student community and provide feedback to the EIJC detailing student comments, concerns, or experiences as it relates to the responsibilities of the EIJC. Including to collect, retain, and distribute information pertaining to resources regarding diversity and inclusion offered both on- and off-campus.
