Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Council

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (EDI) Council views equity, diversity, and inclusion as the guiding principles and encourages departments and units across the university to utilize these activities. Our community is made of students (undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral researchers), staff, and faculty who draw from a dynamic range of backgrounds to contribute to the pursuit of our common goals (resources and support, community events, and innovating opportunities) in partnership with the UMSON Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and the core value of the University of Maryland in Baltimore.

The EDI Council is an elected body, as an integrated structure within UMSON Shared Governance. After the election to the body, the EDI Council will elect its first co-chairs (faculty and staff) and secretary for a regular two-year term obligation from its regular members.
