Our Mission

To support and enhance diversity within the College of Natural Resources and Environment, and to promote a culture of inclusion that encourages all members of our community to thrive socially, personally, academically, and professionally.

The mission of the CNRE Faculty Association Diversity Committee is to serve as an educational resource for information and questions about diversity and inclusion for the students, staff, faculty, and administration of the college. The committee will also provide recommendations to the Faculty Association President and Dean.
