App State has made many advancements in diversity and inclusion work in recent years. There is still much to be done to elevate the voices and representation of marginalized populations on our campus, and we are committed to persevering as these cultural and systemic changes take hold.
An accountability team, convened by Chancellor Sheri Everts and composed of students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators and members of the Board of Trustees, helps our university remain focused and accountable.
During regular Diversity and Inclusion Accountability Team meetings, members of the Chancellor’s Cabinet report on progress and challenges related to the initiatives within their areas of responsibility. The accountability team provides feedback, discusses challenges, and helps celebrate successes. Summary reports from these meetings are posted below.
Our work builds upon the many good efforts that have been underway across our campus and helps shine a light on the initiatives and individuals pushing this work to the forefront. Each change helps foster a more inclusive, welcoming environment for underrepresented populations that ultimately benefits our entire campus community.
