The College of Communication Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee exists to elevate and ensure a culture of inclusion in which all members of our community are valued and respected. We strive to create an inclusive and equitable environment that recruits, supports, and retains a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff. We celebrate the diversity of identity, culture, perspective and expression in our community. As professional communicators, we have a responsibility to:
- foster an environment that cultivates diverse storytellers,
- promote the value of research and telling stories in academia and the various fields of professional communication that emphasize diversity, equity and inclusion,
- and inform, enlighten, and prepare the next generation of communicators to thrive in a diverse and inclusive world.
