Diversity Leadership

Meet the diversity leaders in the college and its academic departments.

Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The group is comprised of faculty, staff and students throughout the college. Each of the college’s six academic departments also has a diversity, equity and inclusion committee.
