There is a student advisory board for DEI. A department DEI committee is still in the works. We are discussing Student representation on that committee and the season selection committee. 5.

Both Caitlin Cornell and Liz Grey volunteered to serve as IDEA coordinators along with Ellen. 6. Inclusive Pedagogical Initiative Update [IPI]  The “Pronoun Usage in the Classroom” workshop was well attended by Jesse Beal, The Gender and Sexuality Campus Center.

It was agreed to watch the video before the next meeting and then to further discuss the possibility and potential funding. Here’s a link to the work: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=jY0owXj2WEw&feature=youtu.be The next meeting of the initiative is October 20.  7. The committee discussed the guidelines/rubric for evaluation of DEI statements and the guidelines to applicants. Comments included: 1) the language to the applicants needs to be revised and aligned with the language in the sample rubric, 2) the rubric needs to be revised to include DEI philosophy so that the guidance is steered away from the appearance of a request for personal narrative and rather designed to focus in a workplace context. 3) the guidelines for applicants need to be made transparent to international faculty who might not be aware of the US conversations on DEI. Associate Dean Fritzsche asked committee members to take this document back to their departments for further discussion, review, and feedback to bring to the next meeting. 8.
