Goal 4: Demonstrate courageous leadership in an increasingly
diverse world


Mission

President's Message
Whitworth 2021 Vision

 


OBJECTIVE
Establish a permanent representative council to provide leadership in Whitworth's ongoing efforts to achieve the university's goals for diversity and intercultural competency.


KPI 4.1.1: Establish by fall 2012 a permanent representative body to provide leadership in advancing initiatives related to diversity and intercultural competency.

In fall 2012, Whitworth President Beck A. Taylor established the Institutional Diversity Committee, a representative group of faculty, staff and students that supports Whitworth's diversity-related initiatives and advises the university council on diversity, equity, inclusion and intercultural relations at Whitworth.

Led by Larry Burnley, assistant vice president for diversity and intercultural relations, the 13-member committee's contributions to implementing Goal 4 of Whitworth 2021 have been immediate: the IDC is providing tactical leadership in assessing Whitworth's diversity initiatives and in administering a comprehensive campus climate survey, which Whitworth is undertaking in collaboration with the consulting firm Halualani & Associates.

"The representative composition of the IDC allowed multiple lenses to be used in crafting the survey instruments and will assure broad and inclusive analysis of the data the assessment and survey will yield," Burnley says.

The IDC also serves as a liaison between the consulting firm and constituent groups across campus. After the assessment and survey processes are completed, the IDC will submit reports to the university council, which will include the committee's data-driven recommendations.
