In SU 2.0, the university will centralize DEI’s (diversity, equity, and inclusion) extraordinarily good work that is happening across campus.
The CenSUs task force played a significant role in informing this work. Developing a truly inclusive environment in which all members of the campus community feel a sense of belonging and empowerment is critical to SU’s success and central mission. Concurrently, it is everyone’s responsibility to be strategic, coordinated and holistic about DEI work.
The Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer will oversee a leadership group that will include Inclusive Excellence, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, Religious and Spiritual Life, a faculty liaison, support for international students and employees, and the newly formed IDEA Council (a representative group of students, faculty, and staff who will assess DEI efforts and advise the university on future initiatives)
