Diversity Committee Charges 2020-2021

Diversity Committee

The Diversity Committee assists the Administration in making the School a just and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, and staff, with a special emphasis on those from historically underrepresented and marginalized groups. The Committee also investigates how institutional racism impacts our program of legal education and identifies steps to eradicate that impact.

For 2020-21 the Committee will work with the law school community to continue fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment for all; and work with the Orientation and Professional Development Committees to ensure the law school holds yearly education sessions on diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency for faculty, administrators, and students.

The Committee will have two student members selected by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.
