“As for the committee, members can plan and implement cultural sensitivity and heritage programs, review campus policies and practices to ensure that they are inclusive for all UAFS students, faculty, and staff and serve as resources and advocates for the university’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.

Several subcommittees also have been formed, including ones for steering, hiring, assessment, facilities, programming, training and policies and procedures. The athletics department also has its own diversity, equity and inclusion committee, Riley said. On Nov. 5, that committee brought Jen Fry, a nationally acclaimed speaker and social justice educator, in to lead training sessions, discussion groups and workshops, a UAFS media release stated. Fry is a former Division II athlete and collegiate volleyball coach. She now specializes in training student-athletes, university administrators, staff and coaches on issues of race, inclusion, intersectionality, diversity, and equity.”
