In an effort to better coordinate and support diversity and inclusion efforts across campus, the Provost’s Office is working to ensure university-wide efforts work with local efforts in the colleges and schools.
As part of the University Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan, all colleges and schools formed a Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee in the fall of 2016. These committees are charged with developing plans to assess the state of diversity and inclusion locally, and include recommendations to improve diversity and inclusion for their faculty, staff and students.
The following is a list of the current D&I Committee Chairs who lead their college or school’s efforts to monitor and champion diversity and inclusion efforts throughout their college or school.
