The Diversity Affairs Council aims to facilitate the ongoing process of multicultural inclusion and integration at all levels of the University. We seek to help diversify the organization in terms of its demographic representation, governance, campus climate, operating procedures, pedagogy and curriculum. We prioritize collaboration (throughout all sectors and ranks within the University and across cultural differences) in the achievement of our goals. Ultimately, we strive to make JFKU a more welcoming and productive place of learning for a greater diversity of people.
