Diversity Wordle
To promote diversity awareness and recommend ways to increase diversity and inclusion of all staff on campus in conjunction with the University of Iowa "Core Values," Institutional Goal #5 which strives for a "culturally diverse and inclusive university campus."



Scope of Concern

Develop programs throughout the year to promote diversity awareness, including the annual Staff Council Martin Luther King Celebration. Actively solicit information from and interact with the various diversity groups on campus and in the community in support of their goals as well as jointly sponsoring events/programs. Disseminate information to staff council concerning diversity programs and current activities and seek active support from Staff Council for promotion of these programs. Request annual updates from the University on the progress made toward increasing diversity and inclusion of staff on campus.


Open to any Staff Council member and a representative from each diversity committee on campus.
