The Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Civility
The Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Civility is made up of students, faculty, and staff at the School. In cooperation with the IDARE Office, the Committee acts as an advising body for diverse equity-related initiatives at the Bloomberg School and in the Baltimore community.
The Committee organizes IDARE events, meets with local community organizations, and engages the school's leadership to recommend policies and procedures related to diversity and inclusion at the School.
The Committee is also responsible for monitoring compliance with policies related to recruitment, promotion, tenure, salary equity, termination, and equal program accessibility and opportunity for faculty, staff, and students.
The Committee's responsibilities include:
- Recommending and promoting policies and programs that will attract and retain a diverse mix of faculty, staff and students
- Examining formal and informal structures and processes to identify and address impediments to inclusion
- Identifying constraints and barriers to affirmative action and equal opportunity and assure that the Bloomberg School’s affirmative action and equal opportunity policies and procedures are being used appropriately and judiciously
- Benchmarking diversity and inclusion at the school via periodic reporting
- Promoting and supporting diversity awareness School-wide
- Forming subcommittees to address specific short- or long-term issues identified as relevant to the charge of the Committee
Members of the Committee are appointed by the dean of the Bloomberg School and meet at least nine times each year.
At least six of these individuals are faculty members of various academic ranks. The remainder of the Committee members includes at least three students, at least two staff members, a representative from the Johns Hopkins 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.
