News and Events

The Committee for the Support of Diversity and Equity is a University-wide standing committee reporting directly to the president of The University of Texas at Dallas.

The committee meets regularly to review and discuss issues that affect the institutional status, professional effectiveness and personal morale of women, minorities and members of other underrepresented groups in full and part-time faculty and staff positions.

To support its role in understanding and recommending policy with respect to these and related issues, the committee is empowered to carry out studies, conduct interviews and prepare reports. The committee meets with the president at the beginning and end of each academic year to receive special charges and reports from the administration and to convey to the administration ideas, concerns and advice from the committee that address the issues of eliminating institutional features which differentially and negatively affect women, minorities and members of other underrepresented groups.

It is also within the purview of this committee to recommend the creation and initiation of actions and policies which would support the professional careers of these same individuals.
