After John Jay's 2019 campus wide climate review process, external experts from Working IDEAL shared valuable feedback and recommendations on how John Jay can continue to promote a respectful and inclusive working and learning environment. One such recommendation was to “create a stronger structure to support the ongoing work of the Diversity Committee, including clarifying its mission, role and reporting.”
The College's Diversity and Inclusion Committee is comprised of staff, students and faculty. The Committee's mission is to:
Function as a strategic partner to the President and College community to advance the College’s goal of embodying and promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion among students, faculty, and employees in all operations and activities by:
- facilitating and advancing collaboration among John Jay stakeholders;
- providing input and recommendations to the President and College leadership; and
- serving as visible ambassadors and champions of these issues and values with stakeholders across the College.
