Does the institution have a diversity and equity committee?:

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

The Chancellor's Advisory Committee for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion was formed in 2009, transitioning from acting as The Inclusive Community Task Force begun in 2008 to investigate diversity issues at UNCG. In 2009, the committee was asked to identify two to three initiatives based on the data collected from two years of panels and open forums. The Chancellor requested that this group submit recommendations in the form of a proposal with a budget for her review and approval. In addition, the Chancellor requested this group to consider carefully the title for a senior position that would provide leadership for the Office of Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion. Finally, this group was requested to determine what current programs on campus might be ideally placed under the administration of this office.

In 2011-12, the Chancellor charged the committee to focus on:
1. LGBTQQI issues for faculty and staff.
2. Improving employee training (specifically individuals in senior level positions as well as anyone identified as holding a supervisory position).
3. Diversifying the Administrative and Supervisors levels by potentially expanding and modifying typical modes of advertising position openings locally, regionally and nationally.

Does the institution have a diversity and equity office?:

A brief description of the diversity office:

Currently there are no employees that work directly for the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. The University was in the process of searching for an Associate Vice Chancellor to head the office, who will in turn staff the office as necessary. However, in March 2011 due to severe budget cuts in the state university system, this search was put on hiatus. Once funding is available for the position the search will resume.
