The Mission of the Diversity Advisory Council

The Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) will assist the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) in the design and implementation of strategies that advance and enhance diversity at UGA.  The council will advise the associate provost in issues related to diversity and inclusion on this campus.  This council should identify the barriers to achieving greater diversity at UGA and provide recommendations on how to overcome those barriers.

The council, through its committee structure, will study the diversity literature research and review models in order to propose best practices and strategies that improve diversity at UGA.  In addition, the council will provide public campus forums for the discussion of diversity-related issues and ideas and promote a campus dialogue about diversity with a particular focus on ensuring a sense of inclusion.
