Diversity Learning Sub-committee (DLS) -- To create programs that will engage the University community, challenge perceptions, heighten empathy and create a welcoming and inclusive campus environment.

Anti-Racist Education Sub-committee (ARES) -- The University believes that effective community and institutional change happens when those who serve as agents of transformation understand the foundations of race and racism and how they continually function as a barrier to community self-determination and self-sufficiency. In line with this thinking, the Anti-Racism Education Sub-Committee’s purpose is to educate the university community students and employees about the continuing legacy of institutional racism and about anti-racism theory and practice.
