We advocate on behalf of our community—ComArtSci students, faculty and staff—to ensure equity and opportunity. We work to foster an environment that empowers and includes all.
Members of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee represent a diverse cross-section of our college and are committed to creating a community of excellence, one built by a diversity of faces and thoughts. We work to ensure individuals feel safe, heard and have equal opportunities for success. The committee provides leaders in the college with guidance on college policies especially in areas of inclusion and diversity and plans activities that will create a better understanding of our community and our world.
Chair: Lauren Gaines McKenzie, Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
