The goal of the Belonging committee is to create an environment where individuals feel comfortable, welcomed, and valued.

Currently, our committee is working to achieve belonging through:

  • Creating digital and physical spaces for belonging
  • Highlighting departmental and university-wide DEI events
  • Spotlighting community member achievements
  • Supporting social engagement through events (e.g., Coffee Hours, Fall Fest, Holiday events)
