Get Involved

Every member of our campus community has a part to play as we work to reaffirm our core values of diversity, inclusion and respect. These are some ways to get involved in this important work.


Joint President/Senate Inclusion & Respect Task Force

The Inclusion & Respect Task Force Force was created jointly by the President and the Senate to consider how best to nurture a climate that is more respectful and inclusive of all members of our campus community, stands against hate, and reaffirms the values that define us a University. It is expected that the task force will report its findings by April 2018.

The task force will engage members of the campus community through open forums and other opportunities. Task Force meetings will be open and individual agendas will indicate meetings in which there will be opportunities for public comment. Community engagement opportunities and meeting dates can be found on the Task Force’s website.

To submit feedback directly to the task force on specific working group areas (climate, free speech/hate speech, prevention & education, policies & procedures, hate/bias or other elements of the charge), please go here.
