Dean’s Task Force on Campus Community Development
Members of the Campus Life Division stand ready to work alongside students to advance the vision of a more inclusive, equitable, and vibrant community as articulated in the Student Government Resolution for the Prioritization of Campus Community Development. The Dean’s Task Force on Campus Community Development has been charged to listen and respond to concerns from various campus constituents on issues that directly pertain to the offices within the Campus Life Division and to move forward those items within our purview that will create a more equitable and inclusive social environment. Action steps may include:
This task force will continue to review existing qualitative and quantitative sources, engage students in conversation who represent a diverse array of experiences and special interests, and set meaningful and attainable objectives to enhance the student experience in the short term and offer recommendations on goals to be pursued within the context of any future College-wide strategic planning activities. This task force will conclude its charge by presenting its action steps for fall 2021 along with future recommendations at a summit for students.
