Commission on Diversity and Inclusion 


"Diversity is a key ingredient of a quality education, scholarly discourse and reflection. Faculty, staff and students alike benefit from learning to function within a setting that allows or demands that one adapt to the complex social structures of having to learn from, teach or work with those who are not like oneself." University of Minnesota Best Practices in Recruiting and Retaining Under-Represented U.S. Minority Faculty Handbook

The CODI 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 outlines 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).
