DEI Committee

 

Mission

To guide and empower the Division of Student Life to accomplish our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) aspirations, goals and objectives as outlined by our divisional strategic direction. The Student Life DEI Committee will review and initiate strategies that will help Division of Student Life employees prioritize, create, and sustain a campus environment that will exemplify DEI. Our work will be grounded in one of the key Student Life strategic direction values: “taking ownership for addressing and advocating for issues directly impacting marginalized communities in order to create a more just world.”
