Formed in May of 2016, the Inclusion and Diversity Council was created to serve as the primary organizing╠řbody for long-term╠řdiversity and inclusion╠řefforts at ┬▄└˛╔š. The group has been╠řcharged with╠řrenewing ┬▄└˛╔š's╠řdiversity strategic plan and leading the university in a╠řnew direction as we seek╠řto serve an incredibly diverse and ever-changing population of students, faculty, and staff. ╠řIn addition to its work on the diversity strategic plan, the council will also serve as an advisory board throughout the year. The group will work╠řto address concerns and provide solutions to campus-wide issues╠řas they relate to diversity and inclusion.

This group of IDC members consists of a wonderful mix of both long-time and new ┬▄└˛╔š faculty and staff, as well as student leaders. The group is co-chaired by one faculty member and one staff member. This helps us to ensure that we are providing a voice and╠řmeeting the needs of╠řour entire community. IDC╠řmembers are appointed for a two-year term and╠řinvited by the Chief Diversity Officer, Tiffany Hamilton, to serve in this╠řimportant role.╠řThe IDC members for 2022-2024╠řare:
