In early April, there will be four sessions held on campus and four off campus to discuss and share the framework of Diversity for the campus and the broader community.
Since November, there were six committees made up of faculty, staff and students who researched and prioritize initial action items for six major catergories including: faculty/staff professional development and capacity-building experiences, undergraduate curriculum, administration and accountability, access and recruitment, STEM initatives, and retention and research.
