What Do We Do?

The purpose of this group is to provide direct input to the Dean and Office of Diversity Relations on the vision formation for the colleges’ diversity and inclusion strategy. The group plans, supports and hosts college-wide events for Terry such as the Diversity Café which highlights various topics relating to diversity and inclusion.

What is Our Vision?

Our vision is to create an environment that encourages each of us to form real relationships with people who are different from us and capture the value that accessing those talents and insights bring to the innovation and problem solving process.  By fully engaging all employees, we aim to enhance the quality of the Terry experience for our employees and students.
