Commission on Diversity and Inclusion

Our mission is to advise the University of North Florida President on diversity, inclusion and racial equality pertaining, but not limited, to: 

  1. strategies, policies, and praxis for new, revised, and modified initiatives in support of our vision;
  2. recruitment, retention and/or admission of faculty, staff and students of color as outlined in the University’s strategic plan;
  3. inequities based on race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, national origin, marital status and other group categories designated by law, ordinance and university policy; and
  4. communication and awareness across campus constituencies (faculty, staff, students, and the many publics).

In fulfilling this mission, the Commission will proactively engage the UNF community to embrace and accept diversity and inclusion as an institutional core value. The Commission will cultivate a shared commitment to diverse and inclusive perspectives and a culturally competent and inclusive University environment that values and respects the human differences, dignity, and well-being of every community member – students, faculty, employees, visitors, customers, research partners, and vendors.
