Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The DEI Committee guides UMACRAO’s transformative efforts to ensure that all practices and programming promote the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

For the benefit of our students, campuses, and professions, this committee works to find alignment and synergy with AACRAO’s DEI priorities, as we strive toward a more compassionate and accessible higher education environment.

As we look forward to 2024, the UMACRAO DEI committee will be reviewing our definitions of key words like “diversity”, “equity”, and “inclusion” and what they mean specifically to our committee and our organization. We’d love to hear from UMACRAO members about their experiences with this terminology: What confuses you? What concerns you? Do you have a resource that has really helped you understand one of these terms? Please reach out to the DEI committee and let us know! This webpage will be updated as our committee arrives at a common understanding of what these terms mean to us, so as to provide strong foundation for programming as we move forward.
