President’s Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The committee will define high-level goals for campus engagement in the university’s work on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. The committee will outline a strategy to help achieve these goals. It will also make initial recommendations on actions and promising practices to implement the strategy and advise on methods for assessing progress.

If you would like to write to the committee with recommendations regarding how Yale can support a community culture in which all members – staff, faculty, alumni, and students – feel fully part of Yale, are treated with dignity and respect, and feel welcome to make their voices heard, please use the webform.
