Diversity Liaisons and councils

Diversity Liaisons are established in section 7.0 of the Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity section of the Senate Policy File to serve as liaison between the Chief Diversity Officer and their units, including offering informal advice and counseling to their peers and reporting to the Chief Diversity Officer on existing and new diversity initiatives within their respective units. The Inclusion Council comprises the liaisons from the academic colleges; the Equity Council comprises the liaisons from the divisions and auxiliaries. 

Each unit (college, division, auxiliary) also has a local diversity council to review, advise, and provide feedback to the unit’s leadership regarding matters related to students, staff and faculty diversity, equity, and inclusion; provide guidance and support for the development, implementation and on-going assessment of unit diversity plans; and coordinate DEI initiatives within and across units and contribute to campus DEI initiatives.
