Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council


To identify, recommend, and support the implementation of policy and process solutions that enable our campus community to embrace diversity, nurture inclusivity, incorporate accessibility, and pursue equity.

These principles will be reflected in our internal and external communications, as well as in campus educational experiences, programs, and activities, such that Black, other students, faculty and staff of color, and other underrepresented groups are recognized and supported. This will empower our campus community members to learn and grow as we appreciate our value in an ever-changing global community.

To do this the Council will:

  • Identify ways that the FSC community can educate its members about racial inequality and social injustice;
  • Support actions that the FSC community can pursue to be positive voices for justice, inclusion, and peace;Support actions that the FSC community can pursue to be positive voices for justice, inclusion, and peace;
  • Through the Councils’ Committees, include students, faculty, staff, and alumni leaders in plans to develop a deeper understanding of race bias and strategies for reducing it;
  • Oversee plans to educate students, faculty and staff about issues relating to racial inequality and social justice; and
  • Provide an evaluation assessment to measure FSC’s progress.

The outcomes of this Council will build a college community that serves as an exemplar of educational opportunity and success for students of color and will develop high-impact practices that will be a model for other institutions.
