CLAS Standing (Appointed) Committees — Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Visit the CLAS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion website.

The CLAS Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion comprises eleven voting members:  five representatives selected by the CLAS Faculty Assembly, including at least one instructional-track faculty member and one tenure-track faculty member; two representatives selected by the CLAS Staff Council; and four members appointed by the CLAS Dean’s Office, including one faculty member (instructional-track, clinical-track, or tenure-track), one undergraduate student, one graduate student, and an associate director from CLAS Academic Programs and Student Development. Interim Dean Sara Sanders chairs the committee and serves as an ex-officio non-voting member.

The committee meets on a monthly basis during the academic year and, once a year, provides a report to the Dean and the Faculty Assembly about the state of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the College.

We welcome ideas, questions, and feedback from all of our students, faculty, and staff.

Please contact us at clas-strategic-communications@uiowa.edu. One of our committee members will reply.
