Inclusion Council

UMBC announced the creation of a new Inclusion Council on June 30, 2020. This group of students, faculty, staff, and alumni began work immediately to identify short- and long-term goals and recommendations. The Inclusion Council has been given the charge of providing advice and guidance from a variety of perspectives to the Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI), to act as ambassadors for the office across campus, and to provide a venue for discussion of issues as they arise.

The Inclusion Council membership is comprised of a diverse group of UMBC’s community who bring unique perspectives and insights to OEI. There are a number of issues; ranging from curriculum, faculty and staff diversity, to intersectionality and restorative practices; that the Inclusion Council is working on.

The Inclusion Council has launched working groups to gather information, develop recommendations, and propose a plan of action with respect to a number of issues that have been identified by our community as priorities. Click here for more information about the Inclusion Council Working Groups.
