The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) is responsible for informing and making recommendations to the Senate in matters pertaining to social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Specific matters for review and advice may include:

  • awareness and education (best practices to build a campus culture that promotes DEI)
  • faculty affairs (e.g., recruitment, hiring, retention, promotion, representation, and compensation of faculty)
  • advocacy (internal and external communications and events promoting inclusiveness in all aspects of campus life)
  • research and scholarship (e.g., systematic review of data, policies, and programs to assess the status of women and underrepresented minorities in all aspects of faculty affairs).

The DEIC and Faculty Development Committee (FDC) will work together to avoid duplication of efforts. The DEIC will also collaborate with the FDC in order to support improved diversity, equity, and inclusion within existing faculty development initiatives. The DEIC works with UAB’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI), the Office of the Provost, the Office of Institutional Analysis, and the VPR and collaborates with other Standing Committees of the Faculty Senate when appropriate.

The membership of the DEIC committee will include a representative from UAB’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI).
