Diversity & Inclusion


Members of the Committee on Equity, Diversity and Civility are appointed by the dean of the Bloomberg School.

Membership reflects the gender and minority interests of the larger Bloomberg School population.

At least six of these individuals are faculty members of various academic ranks. The remainder of the Committee members include at least three students, at least two staff members, a representative from the University whose responsibilities include institutional equity and a representative of the dean’s office.

The latter two members serve in an ex officio capacity. Bloomberg School faculty, staff and students who are members of the University's Diversity Leadership Council are also appointed to the Committee.
