EGSS is looking for two volunteers to sit on the Diversity and Equity Committee of the Department of Integrated Studies in Education.
The proposed committee is an interim response to the call from EGSS Council for a reconstitution of FEDEC; given the Faculty’s current state of flux, the department has agreed to form an initial committee at the department level. The committee has been tasked with the responsibility of exploring, and proposing concrete strategies for improving, what have been identified as issues of concern and importance to the department in a series of report, including the 2009 FEDEC Report to previous Dean Perrault, the faculty Undergraduate Program Revisioning Report (2010), the Principal’s Task Force on Diversity, Excellence, and Community Engagement (2011), and, most recently, the Report on Diversity and Equity in the Faculty of Education (2013) authored by rosalind hampton, VP of Diversity and Equity of EGSS.
If you are interested in being part of this initiative, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a meeting coming up next week, so volunteers are expected to attend and report back to EGSS.
