Committee for Diversity Action, Inclusion & Equity


Purpose

The purpose of the Committee for Diversity Action, Inclusion and Equity (CDAIE) is to develop and implement a strategy for diversity, inclusion and equity which is active and aligned with Mesa’s mission, vision and values. The Committee's overarching goal is to engage and support students, faculty and staff in the ongoing process of transforming our campus environment into one which we envision as safe, supportive, culturally proficient, globally inclusive and reflective of the larger San Diego community.

Type: Governance

Reports to: President's Cabinet (PCAB), Academic Senate

There are generally no meetings held in January or August! Visitors are welcome! Please e-mail Judy Sundayo at jsundayo@sdccd.edu if you plan to visit!  |  View Agendas & Minutes


Goals

  1. That students, faculty and staff will feel supported, comfortable and included on campus
