Diversity Advisory Committee Charge
The Diversity Advisory Committee will create and sustain a forum for campus-level
dialogue on issues directly related to diversity and inclusion at Marquette University,
- Build on institutional strengths of Marquette as a Catholic Jesuit university committed
to an affirming and inclusive community as articulated in the university’s “Statement
on Diversity and Human Dignity.”
- Generate and pursue ideas in greater depth, including opportunities to increase representation
of diverse populations throughout the campus community, maintain a welcoming and affirming
campus environment, strengthen prospects for inclusive scholarship and learning, and
engage the greater Milwaukee community through outreach.
- Offer recommendations to the Office of the Provost and in particular the Associate
Provost for Diversity and Inclusion that provide a pathway to inclusive excellence
throughout the Marquette University community.
The Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion is the committee chair. Committee
meetings will be held at least twice each semester through the academic year and as
needed during the summer.
The committee will consist of 20 to 24 members drawn from across the university community
and include employees (faculty and staff) and student representatives. The term of
service on the committee will be for three-years for university employees and one
year for student members. The employee members will be recommended by the Associate
Provost for Diversity and Inclusion and appointed by the Provost. The student members
will be appointed by Marquette University Student Government and the Graduate School
