GPSG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee – Mission

The GPSG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is a Standing Committee of the GPSG Assembly. Led by the Director for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the DEI Committee is tasked with identifying ways to continuously promote diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus. One major way this is accomplished is through connecting with DEI leaders across campus, be they students, faculty, or staff. Members of the DEI Committee work to impart meaningful change on campus through conversations with administration, passing key resolutions through the GPSG assembly, and collaboration with other student groups both within and without the GPSG body. As issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion can touch many aspects of student life, the DEI Committee is open to approach about any topic.

To anonymously contact the committee with suggestions, concerns, or to bring a topic to our attention, please use this reporting form:
