Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership Team
The DEI Leadership Team will make recommendations to the President on matters related to the DEI projects, concepts and implementation steps.
Four advisory groups will be created: faculty, staff, students and community partners. Each advisory group serves to provide input, guidance and feedback in all matters related to the overall DEI project, and works directly with member(s) from the President’s Leadership Group.
The action plan contains steps around the areas of investments in training; employee recruitment and retention; student success; policies and programming; facilities and finances; research into social and racial injustice issues and health disparities; and community outreach.
The project groups are organized around six structural components for institutional change and are led by project lead(s). Each of the six structural components is led by executive sponsor(s). Each project group has student, faculty and staff representation.
