Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Council


The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Council serves as the major planning and policy-making body for the College’s human resource and cultural improvement activities. The DEIB Council is responsible for creating equitable and inclusive policies for the College’s talent acquisition, professional development, employee retention and engagement, performance management, compensation, and legal compliance processes. Further, the DEIB Council will provide recommendations to the College’s other governance councils and administrative teams on climate and culture improvement opportunities.

The DEIB Council reports to the Executive Director of Human Resources who considers all recommendations made by the DEIB Council and endorses those that are informed by best practice and compliant with applicable law. All approved recommendations will be forwarded to the Executive Council for final review and adoption.
