CFPA Accessibility Diversity Equity Inclusion (ADEI) Committee

This standing (permanent) committee is comprised of representative staff, and students and faculty from each department of the college. We are here for you - our community. We are charged with advising, promoting, and mentoring the efforts of the college to advance the accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion of its practices, pedagogies, policies, and procedures. Our mission is growing and changing as we continue to learn and implement processes throughout the college in order to create and support a culture of greater inclusion.

Please let us know if you have any thoughts or concerns about ADEI in the college. We’re here for you!

What we do

  • Discuss known or potential concerns, successes and insights gained which affect our college community.
    • Identify those issues that are best addressed at the College level for further review.
  • Assess current ADEI efforts and programs underway within the College.
  • Consider best practices from other successful organizations and universities.
  • Encourage robust and frank conversations within and throughout the CFPA community.
  • Assist the Dean in planning and implementing ADEI initiatives and policy improvements.
    • Submit a draft ADEI plan to the Dean with short and long-term goals and aspirations by the end of the Spring Quarter.
    • The draft ADEI plan will be reviewed by the CFPA Faculty Governance Council at the beginning of Fall Quarter.
  • Maintain this webpage and a shared digital space that documents the Committee’s work.

We acknowledge that the work we do is on the unceded and traditional territories of The Coast Salish Peoples, and many other First Nations. This acknowledgment does not take the place of authentic relationships with indigenous communities, but serves as a first step in honoring the land we occupy. Please continue to learn more about the true stewarts of the area Western Washington University is facilitated from.
