  • Promote a welcoming, respectful and inclusive community that encourages understanding of appreciation of difference
  • Identify the needs of underrepresented members of our community and make recommendations for initiatives that will be ongoing with clear intentions to effect permanent cultural change
  • Support diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, strategies and tactics aligned with the strategic plan
  • Assist students, faculty and staff to develop and enhance skills and competencies to relate and work with people who are different than themselves
