Update on CDI meetings

February 04, 2016

  • Douglas K. Newell Professor of Teaching Excellence and Chair of the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion Janet Steverson

Dear Lewis & Clark Community,

The Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) had its first meeting of the semester on January 22, 2016. At the meeting, the CDI reviewed the input that the community had provided via the December 7 listening forum and the online survey.

The next meeting of the CDI will take place on Friday, February 12, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. This meeting is open to the community. The CDI will post the agenda on the diversity website prior to the meeting. If you plan to attend, please RSVP via this link.

Community members may provide input prior to the meeting, after the meeting, or online via this link. However, please remember that this is a working meeting, so only CDI members may participate. (Campus policy prohibits audio or video recording at the meeting without permission.)

Based upon the input from the last meeting, the CDI has created five subgroups that will examine diversity and inclusion issues in the following areas: 1. Hiring; 2. Curricular and co-curricular enhancement; 3. Teaching and professional development; 4. Data collection, analysis and sharing; and 5. Communications and transparency. After the examination the subgroups will present items for the diversity and inclusion action plan.

Janet W. Steverson, Chair of the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion
