Diversity Advisory Council

The Diversity Advisory Council acknowledges and affirms diversity in its myriad forms through support and promotion of persons, campus- and community-based groups, and educational initiatives representing diverse cultural perspectives and sociodemographic backgrounds. As active agents in decision making, the DAC advises the University President and the campus community on matters related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
