Mission: The Diversity Council serves to provide a means for communication between cultures and advocacy student organizations and the Office of Multicultural Affairs so activities and concerns common to such organizations may be handled cooperatively and efficiently.
The council also acts as a resource for student organizations to:
• Mobilize around an issue pertinent to theUniversity
• 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.
