General Agenda Items for 2014-2015

The committee last met on October 8, 2014 to discuss the following agenda items.

  • School-level Data Inquiry

The committee is attempting to secure school-level data about faculty and student representation at the university. We will attempt to secure the same data we received last year from the university, from each School’s particular office of institutional research (with the approval of each School’s Dean).

  • Inclusion, Equity & Diversity programs at NYU

To better understand the landscape of inclusion, equity and diversity at NYU, the committee plans to collect information about all existing (and newly proposed) programs throughout the university that focus on recruiting and retaining faculty and students from underrepresented/underserved populations. This included collecting information on the nature and mission of the program, where (school, administrative office) the program is housed, principal directions, and points of contact.
