The Diversity Liaison program was established in the College of Arts and Sciences in 2012 and has been successful in creating a network of faculty who are committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in their departments and throughout the College. Diversity liaisons are appointed by academic department chairs (and chairs of a few of College’s larger curriculum programs) and ideally should be tenured faculty. 

Diversity Liaisons are leaders for diversity, equity and inclusion within a given unit or department. The primary roles for the Diversity Liaison are: 1) advocating for equity in review processes and policy development within their home departments/units; 2) supporting the department chair or unit director in forwarding DEI goals and mission for the unit; and 3) staying updated both on the College’s DEI practices, policies and the unit’s work in DEI for the purposes of gathering and sharing information.
