In Spring 2019, a leadership team representing Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, the Office of University Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of the President, and Administration and Finance was formed to lead the reaffirmation effort. In Fall 2019, three working groups were formed, one for each of the sub-themes, along with a steering committee to represent the campus more broadly and act as a sounding board for the development of the report. The work of these groups will continue through Spring Quarter 2022. Current membership for the groups are as follows. 

 

NB: All representatives are “or designee.”
