A.S. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee [ASDEIC]

The Associated Students Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee’s (ASDEIC) charge is to engage students at Humboldt State University using principles of shared governance in ongoing critical examination and reflection needed to make essential changes in the academic policies, practices, and behaviors that result in inequity, exclusion, and social injustices at HSU.

ASDEIC will be responsible for coordinating public forums for marginalized students to voice their concerns and provide feedback on campus issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion. A detailed report of the forum’s findings will be created by the committee through the use of a task force and submitted to the Associated Students President, the ODEI, and made public.

ASDEIC will regularly examine the professional development content being provided to students to ensure it reflects the values of diversity, equity and inclusion. The Committee will make recommendations about changes to content in reports sent to the Executive Committee.

ASDEIC will begin with 2 subcommittees. Subcommittees may be added, altered or removed at any point by vote. Subcommittees will provide semesterly reports of their projects and progress to ASDEIC which will then travel out to the students in collaboration with ODEI.
