Collegiate Diversity Group

The colleges, through their leadership, are organized to address diversity issues, including recruitment and retention of underrepresented minorities and women faculty, staff and faculty recruitment, and methods to create a climate that is warm and welcoming to all. The purpose of the Collegiate Diversity Group is to share information, assess the status of and concerns arising from the colleges’ diversity efforts, identify and develop resources for collegiate diversity, and bring to the attention of the deans those issues in need of policy development or resolution across colleges.

The Chief Diversity Officer assists the group in organizing and developing agenda for the meetings. The Offices of Equal Opportunity and Diversity and the General Counsel serve as resources to the group. The co-chairs of the University’s Diversity Charter Committee serve as ex officio members.

Meetings of the Collegiate Diversity Group have focused on undergraduate and graduate/professional student outreach and recruitment, admissions, and financial aid issues. Issues of faculty recruitment, mentoring, and retention have been addressed with the support of the Associate Provost for Faculty Personnel and Development. Consideration of diversity issues in the collegiate academic environment, curricula, and programming are assisted by the Associate Deans for Academic Programs, convened by the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education.
