Equity Advisors


Equity advisors are faculty or staff members appointed by their respective deans to provide oversight and guide school diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts. They play an integral role in developing long-term diversity goals and implementing the campus diversity strategic plan at the school level.  Equity Advisors meet once a month to share resources and provide updates on efforts promoting coordination across schools.
