Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee

With representation across VCFA programs and departments, the DEI Committee works to bring greater equity and inclusion to all levels of the institution and to review planning, policies and procedures related to staff, faculty, students and alumnx, as well as the on-campus experience of all who visit the college, and VCFA's role in the community at large.
