Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In January 2018, the Elliott School launched its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council (DEIC) which is composed of students, faculty, and staff. The council is charged with advising the school's leadership on specific activities and initiatives to implement related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Student Representative Application

The DEIC is searching for two student representatives: one undergraduate and one graduate. Council members are responsible for: 

  • Serving a one-year term (May 2022-May 2023) with the option for renewal. 
  • Attending all monthly meetings including summer planning. 
  • Serving as liaisons between the DEIC and a student-led DEI advisory group. 
  • Assisting with the creation of the school's annual Action Plan for Inclusive Excellence.

Apply to be a DEIC Student Representative

Application deadline is Friday, April 8th. Questions about the application process? Contact Carese Bates.
