The CEE Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee works to create, maintain and implement a roadmap toward ensuring racial and social equity within the department, its curriculum and its programming. The Committee’s ultimate goal is a culture of tolerance, acceptance and respect that spans our students, postdocs, staff and faculty.
Nominations for student membership on this committee are currently being reviewed by a group of CEE undergraduate leaders and the Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC), who will review and then forward all nominations to the 2020/2021 DEI committee. The committee will make a final recommendation for membership to the Department Chair (Professor Lynch), who will appoint the members. We expect final student member appointments will be made by the first week in October.
