Diversity and Inclusion Committee

In the fall of 2018, the Division formed a Diversity and inclusion Committee Group to conduct a self-assessment of the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services' (DSAES) Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) efforts. The committee was created with the following charge: 

  • Evaluate the division's current standing with diversity and inclusion through our collective departments and division efforts.
  • Conducts a Division Audit Based on the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmark Categories; determining DSAES's current level of action related to each of the benchmarks, and include an Executive Summary and Recommendations.
  • Involve staff members to gauge awareness and collect qualitative data to address outstanding needs for the project.
  • Specifically, provide recommendations for the future role for the DSAES Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

Nominations were sought from the DSAES Senior Leadership Team Applications were sought in December 2018, and group members were determined in January 2019. The Committee was originally comprised of thirteen individuals from across the Division. This group has been meeting since January 2019 to conduct an extensive review of the Division using the 2017 Global Diversity & Inclusion Benchmarks (GDIB): Standards for Organizations across the World.
