Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
The MI&I Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEI) is a faculty, staff, and student group that is dedicated to developing and sustaining inclusive environment by embracing and respecting unique backgrounds, perspectives, ideas, and experiences. We will provide leadership to promote an academically enriching climate that supports fairness, impartiality, accessibility, and offers equal opportunities in our MI&I community. Our mission is guided by the principle that diversification, equity, and inclusion are key drivers of innovation, progress, productive scientific collaborations, and a thriving community.
The DEI will collaborate with units on campus to:
- Empower community members to build, develop, and support a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace.
- Organize diverse and inclusive events.
- Create platforms for open dialogue, coordinate training, and provide educational opportunities on issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
