A brief description of the diversity and equity committee, office and/or officer, including purview and activities:

Various diversity committees exist on campus. One such example is a student group working with our Office of Public Safety. The purpose of the Student Engagement Workgroup is for students to work collaboratively alongside the Office of Public Safety (OPS) to advance existing and ongoing diversity, inclusion and engagement goals developed in coordination with the Office of Human Resources through a series of workshops during the academic year.

The group’s agenda is set on generating ideas and initiatives for bringing Public Safety and our student body together, with focus on select student groups, such as our diverse populations on campus. Public Safety’s three-prong Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement plan is the centerpiece for our conversations, with an emphasis on engaging champions across campus for ideas and collaboration in each/any of the goal areas: (1) Engagement; (2) Communication; and (3) Education.

• to engage all members of the campus community and the greater Ithaca community in a conversation about diversity and inclusion.
• to affirm by our actions, not just our words, that we are continually moving forward to increase awareness about D&I
