Diversity Committee

The Student Life Diversity Committee assists Student Life to develop strategies for creating and deepening a sense of community at the University of Tennessee.

The committee serves a resource for executing priority 5 in the Student Life tactical plan and the Diversity Plan. In addition, the committee reviews and provides recommendations for inclusive hiring practices for Student Life.

The Student Life Diversity Committee works in partnership with the Student Life Staff Engagement & Development Committee concerning speakers or activities about diversity and inclusion, and when necessary, sponsors or hosts professional development opportunities in regard to diversity and inclusion for divisional staff and students.

The committee serves as a resource for divisional departments when planning diversity and inclusion events and/or activities and partners with Multicultural Student Life to host reflection times if and when local, national, or regional events happen and have implications for our campus community.
