The Diversity and Inclusion Chair (D&I Chair) works towards creating a more supportive climate for marginalized students including by representing under-represented groups to Exec Board and the College administration and putting on programming in coordination with other groups.
In the 2017-2018 term, the D & I Chair spent her term building the foundation of Diversity and Inclusion within the Board and the greater CMC community. That included restructuring the D & I position with a purpose statement, mission, and core values with the input of the board committee.
The D & I Chair host events with the goal to highlight marginalized communities traditions or presence on campus. Due to D & I Chair being relatively new (2 years old), there is a lot of ground building but the position has the autonomy to bring opportunities to the College president in regards to shortcomings in how financial aid is administered and increasing the diversity of our faculty to reflect our student body.
One of Maya's goals is bringing awareness about issues that the general CMC community would not know about while increasing buy in towards supporting those issues.
