Diversity Advisory Council


Case Western Reserve University values excellence by advancing diversity, equity and inclusion through inclusive thinking, mindful learning and transformative dialogue. The university's strategic plan, Think Big, calls on us to uphold those values and build a respectful, diverse and effective university community.

To help realize campus-wide diversity goals, Diversity Liaisons have been appointed in each school/college to serve on a Diversity Executive Advisory Council (DEAC) and work collaboratively with the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity.
