Diversity Advisory Council
The council makes recommendations to the President that promote the University’s commitment to diversity and a culture of inclusion. We enhance the environment to ensure that diversity is valued and that inclusion is a guiding principle in every aspect of the University’s activities.
To advance diversity and inclusion initiatives under the University’s strategic plan.
Members are appointed by the President. They include:
- Six staff (one of which must be a postdoc) and six faculty members. Each member serves for an initial two years and may be reappointed to serve an additional two-year term.
- Two students serve. Students are nominated by the USGA. Each student serves one year and may be reappointed to serve an additional one-year term.

The associate vice president for academic and student affairs and the associate vice president for human resource services fill these positions.
