Committee Charge:  The Anti-Racism, Anti-Colonialism, and Social Justice Committee intentionally centers anti-racism and anti-colonialism in undertaking its duties and will view all issues in its scope through an intersectional lens. The Anti-Racism, Anti-Colonialism, and Social Justice Committee shall:  1) identify and address any issues related to discrimination, social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for all students and Faculty and shall formulate, review, and recommend policies in these areas; 2) review CSU policy and reports dealing with these issues; 3) serve as a resource and point of expertise for administration, Faculty, staff, and students regarding these issues and shall promote collaboration amongst these groups in order to support and expand efforts in these areas; and 4) identify and recommend systematic and structural changes to the academic governance process to encourage participation by historically excluded groups, including but not limited to consulting, advising, and collaborating with other Academic Senate committees as necessary or appropriate on matters pertaining to these issues. 

The Anti-Racism, Anti-Colonialism, and Social Justice Committee will strive to operate in a way that aligns with the values that are reflected in the Committee’s duties. To this end, the Committee will periodically hold open meetings to solicit the concerns and expertise of various campus groups, in particular those that have been historically excluded.  The group will also regularly send out updates and communiques to these groups in addition to its regular business meeting minutes.
