Designated representatives from each college, decanal, vice presidential unit, SGA and P&A assembly form the University Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council. Tasked to gain consistency and participation across the institution, each department is responsible for at least three initiatives they will pursue in the academic year which illustrate their commitment to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
