The College of Business Diversity Council was established in the fall of 2005 to encourage, implement and celebrate diversity initiatives, as well as to inspire and enhance an environment of inclusion for all regardless of age, ethnicity, social/economic status, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
Specifically, the Diversity Council will develop, recommend, and insure the implementation of strategies and educational activities to uphold the college's commitment to diversity.
Council members are drawn from the ranks of faculty and staff who are engaged in research, teaching and practices that strengthen diversity skills and champion inclusion and equity. Some members represent specific departments; others represent administrative units.
Some initiatives of the council include the following:
- Providing mentors to Centennial Scholars Program students
- LGBTQ Resource
- Veterans Task Force/Return to JMU/4VA
