University Diversity Council

Council Purpose

The University Diversity Council continues the work of the former Faculty Diversity Committee (FDC), but with a broader scope to address a wide range of diversity and inclusion-related issues across the entire university. The Council oversees five working groups with specific diversity/inclusion objectives: Academics/Education, Faculty Recruitment and Retention, Campus Life, Pipeline, and Lifetime Connections. The Council will also report annually to the University community on the status of diversity and inclusion efforts at Northwestern. View the University Diversity Council's current membership.

Additional information on the council and other diversity initiatives at Northwestern University can be found on the Diversity & Inclusion homepage.
