Hickman Diversity Lecture

The Committee for Diversity, Collaboration, and Inclusion seeks to nurture a Zion community - grounded in unity, mutual respect, and charity toward all - in the BYU College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences. We aim to reflect our commitment to achieve this goal by supporting the college in the following three areas:

  1. We will promote the recruitment, training, retention, promotion, and support of faculty of color, women faculty, and faculty from other underrepresented groups, recognizing that their perspectives and contributions enrich the quality of our college's research, teaching, and programming, while strengthening and improving social interactions.
  2. We will collaborate with faculty members, deans, chairs, mentors, and other campus partners to create inclusive academic environments where faculty, students, and staff of all backgrounds and experiences can succeed, thrive, and contribute to the aims of Brigham Young University.
  3. We will strive to help students become sensitive citizens and leaders who are informed and aware of both diversity and culture, helping to make our BYU community and the broader communities in which they live more just, equitable, happy, and inclusive.
