DEI also hosts a monthly meeting of the University-wide Diversity Committee (UWDC) comprised of 75-100 UO stakeholders representing all campus units and ranks, including executive administrators and direct service providers. Students participate in an ongoing basis in the UWDC and the charge of this committee is to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion across campus by implementing the IDEAL Framework (Inclusion, Diversity, Evaluation, Achievement, Leadership). Each element of the IDEAL Framework (http://inclusion.uoregon.edu/IDEAL) has one strategy and five tactics. The IDEAL Framework assists UWDC members to implement best practices and strategic approaches to problem-solving issues about diversity, equity, and inclusion at the UO.
