The IDEAL Staff Advisory Committee is working on many initiatives and projects in partnership with university leaders. Here are updates about our work. 

2022/23 Projects and Initiatives

Throughout FY23, the committee is learning about DEIB initiatives, programs, services, and support from many campus groups.
