The charter or mission statement of the committee or a brief description of the committee's purview and activities :

Drew University is committed to seeking academic excellence while striving continuously to be a welcoming, diverse, and a socially just campus. We aspire to provide an education that in content, scope, and pedagogy embraces difference and promotes respect that extends beyond the classroom to all University spaces and to local and global communities. Diversity encompasses multiple dimensions including but not limited to race, culture, nationality, ethnicity, geographic origin, class, sexual orientation, gender, disability, age, and religion. Our intent is to achieve a learning environment in which students, faculty, and staff understand the challenges, accomplishments, and perspectives of various groups of people, thus gaining a fuller understanding of themselves as well as how to engage in conversation spanning differences and commonalities. Achieving this vision is a fundamental commitment critical to Drew University’s mission as an institution of higher learning.
