This year the Diversity & Inclusion Committee will concentrate on key topics that affect the entire UMN student body, especially minority students, by determining and organizing unique methods to help minimize any barriers in achieving Diversity & Inclusion for all students within the U of M. 

Our committee is focusing on the following action items this year: 

  • Working to implement Ramadan accommodations in dining halls

  • Learning from Duluth Admissions about the potential for a switch to test-optional applications and how it might look at the U of M to promote diversity

  • Working with previous leaders of the Rename/Reclaim Project to determine the best pathway for a vote to remove the names of buildings that represent everything we stand against

  • Working with Career Services Representatives across campus to aid in hosting more diverse employer representatives

  • Finalizing Mental Health Resource Packet for student distribution
