Diversity Advisors

Advancing the mission of UD takes all members of the community.

Embracing and advancing diversity is an institutional value and academic priority.

As you know, diversity is a core value of the educational experience here at UD. We want diversity to be both a compositional and intellectual enterprise in order to foster a more inclusive, engaged and welcoming campus.

Executive Council Diversity Committee

Mission Statement This Council will serve in an advisory role to the new Vice Provost for Diversity, advancing diversity as an institutional value and academic priority.

As a guiding principle, we want diversity to be both a compositional and intellectual enterprise in order to foster a more inclusive, engaged and welcoming campus. Thus, the Executive Council will:

  • Help to develop short and long term goals and objectives concerning diversity
  • Assign priorities and help to develop templates for gauging performance against benchmarks and best practices
  • Create diversity networks on campus that will help to encourage the practice of diversity principles at various levels of academic life
