Chairs: Warren Burggren, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Gilda Garcia, Vice President of Institutional Equity and Diversity
The President’s Diversity Council first convened on Nov. 1, 2011 to apply a university-wide scope in support of a progressively diverse campus that promotes equity and inclusion as core values. In beginning its tasks as a newly developed council, the Diversity Council wanted to incorporate the great work campus groups and teams are pursuing toward these goals into council planning discussions. The council asked for assistance in gathering information about the groups, teams and projects related to diversity throughout the campus. The project resulted in a comprehensive listing of all UNT programs, staff positions, and faculty/staff/student groups. This inventory of existing diversity resources and programs provides valuable information and has the potential to operate as a searchable database online.
The next steps for the council are as follows:
