Climate and Diversity Committee Members

Members of the college’s Climate and Diversity Committee consist of faculty, staff, and student representatives from each department and unit. Each year, the committee selects climate projects and initiatives to work on, and subcommittees are created for each of the chosen initiatives.

The Eberly ombuds assist faculty, staff, and graduate students in conflict resolution and solutions-oriented support. Although each department has at least two Eberly ombuds, individuals can choose to meet with any ombudsperson across the college.
