Student Diversity Advisory Council

The Department of Institutional Diversity Initiatives serves as a liaison to support the activities of the Student Advisory Council such as identifying meeting spaces, providing refreshments, facilitating communication between members and implementing the programs recommended by the student leaders.

The Purpose

The purpose of the advisory council is to provide the students' perspective, input and advice to the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement.
