Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

This webpage is currently under construction. As a new committee, it was just getting ready to organize and then, the pandemic hit.

Help this committee get formed. Its title is self-explanatory but you can be a driving force for its future.

Contact committee chairpersons, Alisha Taylor (shown left) and Virginia Meany for more information on how to join and participate.
