Task Forces and Committees
At W&L, diversity and inclusion is a community effort. Various committees and task forces of faculty, staff, and students come together regularly to discuss issues relating to diversity, equity, and social justice and to create innovative solutions to building an inclusive campus climate.
University Committee on Inclusiveness and Campus Climate
University Committee on Inclusiveness and Campus Climate (UCICC) reports to the President and is charged to provide guidance to the President and other members of the university as we build a supportive, inclusive and diverse community and create a climate open and welcoming to persons from diverse backgrounds. The committee represents the views of students, staff, administration, and faculty. It will help the University fulfill its institutional values that stress the importance of the individual and respect for others.
Reporting directly to the President, the committee's specific charge is to:
- Produce an annual report on our campus climate, especially with respect to inclusiveness and diversity, that charts the University's progress on key longitudinal measures.
- Advise the president on matters related to inclusiveness and campus climate.
- Address from time to time particular issues of concern, such as gender or racial relations across campus, through focused study and analysis, and make recommendations to the President for further action by appropriate University officials, committees or administrative bodies.
- Provide an institutional platform to address issues of inclusiveness and diversity, in response to concerns within the campus community.
