Get Involved

Academic excellence can only be fully achieved through diversity at all levels. We seek to create and sustain an environment that embraces individuals who represent diverse backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences. Your participation is critical to these efforts. 

The Diversity Committee (DC) is comprised of faculty, staff, and graduate representatives. It is the divisional central point for all diversity matters pertaining to undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff.

Members can answer questions and provide information about upcoming events and details about the opportunities listed in the pages below.
