About the Board

Mission

Promoting and supporting diversity and equity among staff and faculty is a priority and a core value at Colorado College. The Diversity and Equity Advisory Board serves as an advisory group to the President of the College and the Cabinet on all matters related to diversity and equity regarding staff and faculty. The board promotes and nurtures an inclusive campus culture that values different backgrounds, experiences, ideas and opinions, recognizing the various intersections of identities that make up the CC community. Its work helps ensure that the College addresses on a continuing basis all of the possible implications of the protections as stated in our anti-discrimination policy statement.

History

The Diversity and Equity Advisory Board was formed to serve as an advisory group to the President of the College and the Cabinet on all matters related to diversity and equity regarding faculty and staff. The Board expands the work of the former Minority Concerns Committee, Women's Concerns Committee, and ADA/504 Advisory Board. The Board takes an intersectional approach regarding matters related to race and ethnicity; gender, sex, and sexual orientation; disability; and other identities. The Board held its first meeting in January 2015.
