Climate of Equity and Inclusion
Faculty Equity Advisors serve as a resource for promoting a positive department climate by contributing to policies and practices that support equity, inclusion and belonging, such as climate surveys and effective responses to identified climate issues.
Help to foster an inclusive environment for welcoming and socializing new staff, faculty, and graduate students to the academic unit.
Work with staff, faculty, and students to ensure that policies practices, and procedures in the unit foster a safe, equitable, and respectful environment.
Serve as a resource for addressing DEIBJ issues that affect the unit’s cultural climate. Consult with the chair/dean or appropriate campus partners when necessary to deal with challenging problems. Please note that major issues should not be dealt with by the Equity Advisor alone.
Review climate surveys and other relevant data when available. Share such data with the faculty in the department/school. Participate in plans for change, if necessary.
