About the Council

Mission statement

The Diversity Council of FIT is an advisory group, assisting the President and the Affirmative Action Officer in matters concerning discrimination, equal educational access and employment opportunities regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation.  

The mission of the Council is to foster a climate of inclusion within the campus community, working to enrich an understanding and respect for each of its members.  The Council encourages all aspects of personal development and growth within this inclusive environment, helping individuals to achieve their potential through diverse relations within the community.

To achieve this effort, the Council will:

  • Develop a strategic vision for enhancing the climate of diversity and creating a bias- free environment.
  • Encourage, review and monitor grant proposals based on how they contribute to the diversification of the campus community and submit recommendations to the President for these awards.
  • Engage in discussions regarding diversity with academic departments and administrative offices, ensuring the achievement of the strategic vision.
  • Support professional development activities that bring students, faculty, staff and administration together to understand the values of a diverse campus community.
