The CAS Office of Diversity & Inclusion (CAS D&I) created the CAS DEI Committee and Liaison Network in Spring 2021 for CAS-based committees and members to attend virtual summits, exchange ideas and practices, and build a community around DEI work. The Network’s goals include the following:

  • To establish the Network as liaisons for CAS D&I to gain insights on areas where departments are seeking DEI-related growth and support, to learn about departmental initiatives, and to get feedback on drafts/proposals for larger strategic CAS DEI work
  • To implement DEI committees and liaisons as a CAS-wide approach for departments and programs to examine and act on DEI concerns
  • To build out an impactful and sustainable interactive structure among the committees and liaisons
  • To provide some structured support for professional development, strategic support, and programming

Looking ahead to 2023-2024
