Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism Committee

 

The CHABSS Diversity Working Group (CDWG) was formed in 2014 to advance diversity inclusion in the college. Pursuing the CHABSS Strategic Goals and in close coordination with the Dean’s office and university diversity efforts, the CDWG  promoted diversity in the classroom, in the curriculum, in hiring and retention of faculty and staff, in research, and in our college community. In May 2021, the CDWG was formally adopted into the bylaws as a college-wide governance committee and renamed the Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-racism Committee (EIARC).
