Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Mission statement:

The University of Florida Council on Diversity stated: “As the University of Florida harmonizes efforts to become one of the top public research institutions, a commitment to diversity is clearly illustrated in the University Work Plan to improve student and faculty diversity.” President Bernie Machen also stated: ” Diversifying the faculty is a goal UF must achieve to maintain the vitality of the faculty and student body.” Following these two statements, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the College of Education has a commitment to not only improve student and faculty diversity but to have this diversity illustrated in the curriculum and service of the programs, degrees, and certificates produced in the College of Education. Further, we are also committed to the cultural competence of all members of the College of Education community.

Constitutional Responsibilities:

“This committee will consist of two people from each school as well as a voting representative of the Council. This committee shall make recommendations regarding policies and matters related to diversity within the College of Education.”
