HHS DEI Committee
HHS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
The HHS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee consists of the associate dean for diversity, equity and inclusion, who serves as chair, and the directors of diversity, equity and inclusion in each academic unit. Diversity references representation, equity means that everyone has an equal chance of success, and inclusion involves feeling welcomed and a sense of belonging.
This committee focuses on matters related to increasing diversity among faculty, students and staff and fostering equity, inclusion and success. The committee examines existing policies, programs, procedures and initiatives — informed by relevant data where possible — to identify areas for improvement. The committee discusses and implements strategies and initiatives for creating and sustaining positive change. Examples include a focus on DEI in relation to research, outreach, engagement, recruitment, retention, scholarships, fellowships, grants, mentoring, curriculum, teaching and learning opportunities for raising critical consciousness and reducing bias.
HHS DEI committee members serve as DEI liaisons to other major committees including the Faculty Affairs Committee, the Graduate Educational Policy and Curriculum Committee, the Honors Programs Coordinating Committee, the International Programs Committee, the Undergraduate Educational Policy and Curriculum Committee and the Research Advisory Council.
