Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee promotes initiatives and addresses student concerns related to campus DEI. The DEI committee engages in discussions on how to ensure SUNY is a welcoming place to study for students of all backgrounds. The committee also researches topics for a variety of different cultures to dissolve common stereotypes and collaborates with other SUNY SA committees where appropriate.
For any inquiries regarding the committee, please contact Chief of Staff Taryn Rackmyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
