Diversity, University Committee on (UCD)

Charge

The Advisory Committee on Diversity Program Planning and Coordination (ACD) began meeting in April of 2007, and the name was changed to University Committee on Diversity in December 2010.

The University Committee on Diversity (UCD) will

  • Assess annually the effectiveness of diversity efforts on campus,
  • Identify gaps in university diversity policies,
  • Develop new proposals and initiatives to strengthen diversity efforts, and
  • Encourage units to meet diversity objectives set forth in ISU’s Strategic Plan.

The Committee will work with faculty, staff, and administrators with responsibilities for these issues to support

  • The design of new policies,
  • Improved recruitment,
  • Increased retention, and
  • Advancement of equity.

Activity

One of the major activities of the committee is the review of diversity reports that are submitted by the colleges and units. The UCD is also responsible for reviewing applications for the Women's and Diversity Grants Program that is administered by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost. The committee also supports diversity-related events and activities that occur across the university.
