In 2019, under the direction of VP for Equity and Inclusion Dr. Assata Zerai, the Liaisons in Equity and Advocacy for Diversity (LEAD) Council was formed. The council is comprised of College/School Senior Diversity Officers.
The charge for the LEAD Council is:
- Exploration of DiversityEdu online training modality for all faculty/administrator search committee members
- Creation of an in-person training curriculum for all faculty/administrator search committee diversity advocates within your college/school
- Feedback on and roll out of a revamped postdoc program and minority faculty bridge funding
- Service as ex-officio member of the Diversity Council (DC).
