About the DEI Advisory Committee

The Berkeley College Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Committee is responsible for ensuring Berkeley College maintains an active role in cultivating and sustaining a culture for education, advancement, and career development that is reflective of our diversity and mission.

In August 2020, Berkeley College appointed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force (DEITF) to help guide the future of DEI at the College. The DEITF submitted its recommendations to the President in the spring of 2021 following a Climate Survey of Faculty and Staff and a Climate Survey of Students administered by the Task Force.

The DEITF fulfilled its initial purpose by conducting the Climate Survey and submitting its recommendations. President Diane Recinos, Ed.D., formed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Committee in order build on the important work of diversity, equity, and inclusion and apply a DEI approach into all areas of the College.

“The time has come for each individual to examine their roles in perpetuating discrimination, bias, and bigotry – of any form and in any manner, whether concealed or obvious – and to be a part of the solution in remediating and eradicating these societal wrongs.”
