• Provide a guide to utilizing University resources for club activities
• Hold the University accountable to diversity policy in student life
• Advise the Office of Multicultural Affairs on programming and development.
Membership: The Diversity Council will consist of students representing cultural and advocacy organizations that are recognized by the Student Association. Each organization will have one representative on the Diversity Council.
Advisor: The staff sponsor will be the director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs. This individual will act as an advisor to the Council and a spokesperson for the university and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
Meetings: The Diversity Council will meet on 2 to 3 times a semester (no more than once a month), and at other times when specifically called for by the Advisor.
Those representatives who are unable to attend are required to send another representative from their organization to act as a proxy in their absence.
