Mission & Vision
The Commission on Diversity and Inclusion mission is to advise the University of North Florida President on diversity, inclusion and racial equality pertaining, but not limited to (a) strategies, policies and praxis for new, revised and modified initiatives in support of our vision; (b) recruitment, retention and/or admission of faculty, staff and students of color as outlines in the university’s strategic plan; (c) 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 (d) communication and awareness across campus constituencies (faculty, staff, students and the many publics).
CODI desires to:
- Increase the appreciation for, and the awareness of the benefits, importance and relevance of diversity and inclusion.
- Work collaboratively to advance the efforts to be more diverse and inclusive, identifying and challenging obstacles, and identifying and building assets and strengths.
- Increase and enhance community recognition of UNF as a diversity-welcoming university.
The Commission on Diversity and Inclusion is interested in acknowledging and honoring exemplary efforts and awards for those who promote, foster and demonstrate understanding and appreciation for advancing and celebrating diversity and inclusion. Any recommendation will be considered, from the UNF community or otherwise. If you have a recommendation you would like to see included on this website, please submit by Email.
