Dean's Advisory Committee on Diversity & Inclusion (DACDI)

The Dean's Advisory Committee on Diversity & Inclusion (DACDI) makes recommendations to the Dean in support of creating a diverse and inclusive community and to act as a catalyst and advocate in furthering the college's goal of creating a community of mutual engagement for all identity groups.

The Committee is comprised of members from throughout the College, and its affiliates and will:

  • Research, monitor and report on institutional efforts
  • Identify needs and areas of concern
  • Propose policies and programs
  • Collaborate with campus organizations
  • Monitor effectiveness of policies and initiatives

Five subcommittees work to address diversity and inclusion initiatives in the following areas:

  • Education and Curriculum
