  • Periodically review and recommend changes to the university diversity strategic plan,
  • Facilitate the implementation of existing diversity strategies, programs, and initiatives,
  • Periodically review and recommend changes to the campus diversity assessment plan,
  • Assist in highlighting, recognizing, and publicizing diversity initiatives to
    promote campus-wide cooperation and participation,
