Does the institution have a diversity and equity committee?:
Yes

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

Diversity Council mission is: “To foster the principle that liberal education at Stetson means liberating yourself from prejudice. This means studying with and living with people who have had life experiences different from your own. We start by affirming the human dignity, worth, and equality of each member of our community. We protect and encourage each other. Through sharing our life stories and the stories of our ancestors, we learn how people have been unfairly treated or privileged because of race, ethnicity, religion, economic class, or sexual orientation. We challenge you to bring your own individuality to the richness of human experience at Stetson. Embracing diversity here, you can prepare yourself for the diverse world outside our gate.”
