Equity Advisors


Equity Advisors are faculty or staff members who are appointed by school deans to lead diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) activities and conversations for their area. They provide oversight and guide DEI efforts, and play an integral role in developing long-term diversity goals for their respective schools. Equity Advisors meet once a month to plan, and share resources and updates on the diversity strategic planning process.
