Diversity Action Committee

Representation Work Group

The Representation Work Group of the institutional Diversity Action Committee will support the university’s ability to seek and maintain fully represented populations within the student body, and faculty and staff bodies. The Work Group consists of three subcommittees, each focusing on a specific population. Each of the three subcommittees will fulfill the mission of the Representation Work Group by:

  • Reviewing applicable data. 
  • Identifying underrepresentation, submitting recommendations, and assisting with the development of tools and methods to enhance existing and/or produce new, innovative, and creative approaches to positively influence the recruitment and retention of students, faculty, or staff from underrepresented groups.
