The Inclusion and Diversity Council was created at Post University to establish a long-term commitment for Post to be a genuine leader in influencing meaning change in our society. The mission of this group is to lead positive, transformative changes within the Post University and Greater Waterbury community that support, cultivate and sustain diverse perspectives through conversations, events and actions. Their commitment is to ensure an environment of inclusion, equity and justice for all people.
There will be two subcommittees: Post (internal) and Community (external). The implementation of subcommittees will enable equal focus and attention both within the university and the Greater Waterbury community.
The members of this council spread across all departments at Post to ensure different perspectives are considered and understood. Below are the members and their role at Post University.
