➡ The Equity Advisor Expectations and Compensation memo is now available.
In June 2014, all schools and academic units were asked to appoint an Equity Advisor, who would take leadership on matters of equity, diversity, and inclusion within their institution. Distributed throughout the University, these Equity Advisors leverage their direct experience with local culture and climate to advise their deans in terms of strategy, policy, training, climate, and accountability.
Roles and responsibilities are still in flux; however, many Equity Advisors already play a concrete role in faculty training, monitoring the faculty search and other hiring processes, and consultations on matters of pay equity. Although Equity Advisors report directly to their deans, they also work closely with and provide invaluable advice to the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. They constitute the most important advisory council for the Office.
If you have a question, concern, or suggestion, please contact your local Equity Advisor.
