The purpose of the School of Education (SOE) Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Committee is to provide the students/faculty with appropriate resources that will aid in the development of culturally competent professionals who create a welcoming environment, demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of individual and group identities among their colleagues and their students. The committee acknowledges that this work can at times be uncomfortable, and trusts that all members are here to learn, and commit to help one another and our colleagues in that learning process.
The DEI committee will:
1. Plan and implement diversity education activities including but not limited to: common reads, workshops, speakers, and social events coordinated by the committee.
2. Develop and distribute a comprehensive calendar of cultural/diversity activities--if possible bimonthly, including those not planned by the committee (university events).
3. Monitor the progress of the SOE to meet AAQEP Accreditation diversity requirements while supporting the diversity initiatives of Campbell University.
