UA Little Rock will improve diversity, inclusion, equality, and global understanding in the campus community.
– Goal 5 from the 2017 UA Little Rock Strategic Plan
The university understands the importance of leading by example in the quest for racial and ethnic justice for everyone. We are committed to creating a diverse community within our campus as well as the greater community. The Diversity Council was created to lead this endeavor.
The Executive Committee of the Diversity Council consists of Sharon Ann Downs (Chair), Angela Hunter (Associate Chair, ex officio), and a Secretary (vacant). The Council has three committees: Education, Policy, and Data. There are currently 22 members of the Council, each of whom serve on at least one of the three committees.
The mission of the UALR Diversity Council is to improve diversity, inclusion, equality, and global understanding within the campus community by promoting dialogue, providing information, and fostering respect for all students, faculty, and staff. The Charter was revised in 2017.
