Description:

The committee works with the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs and Diversity to provide campus leadership on diversity issues. These issues include: diversity in undergraduate and graduate student populations; curricular diversity in undergraduate and graduate programs; recruitment, mentoring, and retention of faculty of color; creating a campus climate that assumes, accepts, and engages diversity as necessary to the pursuit of the Jesuit educational mission; creating mutually supportive linkages, and enhancing the College’s reputation, in Baltimore; creating mutually supportive relationships with other colleges and universities in the Greater Baltimore area; and other issues as they arise and complement the committee’s charge. The committee reports annually, in writing, to the Conference.

With the advice of the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs and Diversity, the committee forms task forces to consider diversity matters raised by committee members or Loyola campus constituencies. These task forces may study problems, propose and pursue special projects, convene meetings, and propose that the committee take specific action. Task force leaders are appointed by the Chair. Task forces are composed of committee members, and others as necessary to the task force’s work.

Members include six faculty (at least one from each area and one teaching graduate students) serving two-year staggered terms, selected by the Faculty Affairs Committee; two staff (one from Staff Council); five administrators (one from each Division of the College--Academic Affairs, Development, Administration, Finance, and Student Development), appointed by the respective Vice President; two students.
