Campus Diversity Representatives

Embedded in every school, college and division are Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Representatives, who are charged with supporting the academic achievement of students—in particular, students from underrepresented and targeted groups. These point persons work with their administrative leaders, faculty and staff to address issues of climate in the classroom and workplace.
