VPDI Council

Charge

The Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion (VPDI) Council provides insight and counsel to the vice president. Using the shared governance model of leadership, council members represent the interests of a diverse cross section of the Iowa State University community. The council meets monthly to discuss both national and local challenges, opportunities, and priorities for the university related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Activity

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