CLAS DEIA Committee

The CLAS Dean’s Office is seeking nominations for affiliates, tenure-track faculty, tenured faculty, and full-time AP and PSS staff (30 hours or more per week) to form and then serve on the CLAS DEIA Committee. To learn more about the committee—for example, the rationale for the committee, its tentative charge, its responsibilities, and the length of terms for committee members—see this detailed document.

The committee will begin meeting in Winter 2023. Faculty and staff are encouraged to nominate others or themselves to serve on the committee. By November 11, 2022, nominations and self-nominations should be submitted using the Nominate for DEIA Committee form

Anyone who has been nominated by someone else will be contacted by the Dean’s Office and given an opportunity to accept the nomination. Anyone who has accepted a nomination or has nominated themselves will have until December 7, 2022, to submit a letter of interest to Associate Dean Dwayne Tunstall at [email protected]. Letters of interest should be no longer than one page and address how their personal and professional experiences have prepared them to serve on the committee. 


Those who are selected to serve on the committee will be notified by email no later than December 20, 2022.  

DEI-AB Framework

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging Framework 
The DEI-AB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging) framework is meant to help the Division of Academic Affairs and the Division of Student Affairs align their efforts to advance the University’s commitment to educational equity as articulated in Reach Higher 2025. CLAS will use the framework to recognize and remove the barriers to full participation and provide a safe, inclusive, vibrant community for all.


This toolkit contains resources that support the DEI-AB Framework.
