Campus Equity Implementation Committee, Academic Year 2020-2021

At KU we strive to be a model and representative community of students, faculty members, and staff persons who respect our differences and work together to maintain a learning and professional environment where all can do well.  This task demands a collaborative approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and one that integrates culturally competent protocols and policies in our everyday thinking and practices.   To this end, the Campus Equity Implementation Committee (CEIC), which consists of representatives from each campus level administrative office and academic unit, was recently created to prioritize and facilitate the implementation of our steps forward.  We appreciate your patience and your feedback as the Committee takes on the significant challenge of creating a more representative, equitable, and inclusive KU.
