Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Advising Practice (DEIAP) Committee


DEIAP strives to provide opportunities for advisors across campus to strengthen their advising practices by engaging in trainings and conversations to increase our competency of diversity, equity, and inclusion issues relevant to advising and supporting students.   

Our committee consists of ~6-10 staff and faculty members who advise in some capacity and are committed to helping advisors build inclusive and equitable advising practices.
