As we continue to monitor and document our progress toward creating the equity and access we envision for the Scripps community, we have recognized the need for more robust channels of communication and input from Scripps community members.
To this end, the president has established the Committee on Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (CIDE). CIDE’s charge includes proposing initiatives that will enhance public dialogue on gender identity, ethnicity, religion, race, diversity, and other topics critical to the future of the College and facilitating campus conversations on race, equity, and inclusion. Additionally, CIDE develops recommendations for improving College policies and practices that have an impact on equity and access. The committee includes faculty, staff, students, and an alumna.
CIDE is seeking nominations and self-nominations for members of the 2020-21 committee.
CIDE members formed three working groups: Belonging/Dis-Belonging, Affinity Housing and Nomenclature, and Transnationalism within Structure Systems. The working groups developed recommendations for improving College practices, a number of which have been implemented.
Your voices and perspectives are invaluable as we continue our progress toward creating the equity and access, we envision for the Scripps community. I look forward to CIDE providing robust channels of communication and input from Scripps community members to the senior team and me.
Apply by September 15 to submit your interest as a member. CIDE’s first meeting will be scheduled in October.
