BFA Diversity Committee

The BFA Diversity Committee has prepared a Motion to Revise the Bylaws Describing the BFA Diversity Committee:

Be it resolved that the Section of the Bylaws describing the Diversity Committee be revised as follows:
The Diversity Committee shall address issues affecting faculty from historically underrepresented groups and protected classes, including faculty with diverse gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, spiritualities, social-cultural backgrounds, and physical and cognitive abilities. (December 11, 2012)

The existing charge to the committee in the BFA's Bylaws is as follows: "The Diversity Committee shall address issues affecting faculty women and other protected class faculty, including gay, lesbian, or bi-sexual faculty and faculty with physical disabilities. The Diversity Committee shall have a minimum of eight faculty and two student members, and may choose additional members, subject to approval by the Executive Committee, to ensure sufficient membership to address specific issues and concerns as they arise. One or more members of the Diversity Committee shall also serve on the Chancellor’s Committee on Women, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Minority Affairs, the Chancellor’s Committee on GLBT, and other appropriate campus committees. One or more members of the Diversity Committee shall also serve on the Faculty Council Committee on Women, the Faculty Council Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee, the Faculty Council Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Issues Committee, and other appropriate Faculty Council committees." BFA Standing Rules, Article V, Section 1(f).
