EDC Scope and Goals

  •  Consult with other committees of Faculty Assembly on matters related to the committee’s purview, policies, and activities.
  • Review and assure that policies and procedures related to the committee’s purview are fair and applied fairly to faculty.
  •  Help develop and monitor programs and policies that support the achievement of the committee’s goals.

 Operating Procedures & Annual Report

 Relevant Articles

These articles are a sampling of extant research that articulates the experiences of minorities in higher education settings in the U.S.—from the personal stories of Latina “profesoras”to analyses of attendance data and recommendations for the Student Affairs Office at the University of Michigan to promote a more diverse campus. The EDC presents these to the CU Denver community—faculty, staff, and students—as a means of sharing and gathering information, and furthering constructive dialogue and action on and off campus.​
