The Council on Equity, Inclusion and Community advises the president regarding diversity issues, and serves all populations of the Carlow University community by recommending, monitoring and measuring the outcomes that will help achieve the objectives as outlined in the University’s strategic plan. The council serves as the hub for strategic alliances to ensure that inclusiveness.
The council’s mission is to promote collaboration and partnership by bringing together all facets of the student, faculty and staff experience to achieve the diversity and inclusion goals and objectives for Carlow University.
The President’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion in 2020 welcomed a refreshed perspective and focus with the new strategic plan, The Carlow Commitment.
The council consists of members from various areas across campus and the Carlow community to develop, enhance and sustain synergies and strategic partnerships. Accordingly, there is broad representation across the entire University, inclusive of faculty, staff and students, and with representatives from alumni and the community.
Co-chairs of this council are Bridgette Cofield and Matthew Gordley.
