Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity Committee 2017
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Diversity Committee (2017-2018)



The Mission of the CLAS Diversity and Inclusion Committee is to ensure a culturally conscious and inclusive environment among our administration, faculty, staff, and students. In our commitment to diversity and inclusion we evaluate, hold accountable, and serve as a resource for college departmental diversity committees. We aspire to be a voice for all members of CLAS to foster active dialogue and initiatives that promote the University’s commitment to an inclusive community.


The committee invites your ideas and suggestions, email clasdiversity@villanova.edu
