Minority Employee Council

The Minority Employee Council is an advisory board that makes recommendations to the President via the Vice President of Inclusivity and Diversity on all matters pertaining to diversity, or issues that affect faculty/staff of color. The Council also serves as a catalyst for social engagement and community for faculty and staff of color.  All activities shall advance the educational and cultural philosophical principles of inclusiveness and advocacy, and engender mutual respect for all groups.

The goals for this council are to nurture a better understanding of diversity and encourage collaboration across campus; to advocate for diverse campus populations; to increase diversity among faculty and staff to reflect the communities we serve; to encourage and support an inclusive university environment and to promote and provide a place for community and social interaction among traditionally underrepresented groups.  If you are interested in serving on the council please contact Kandee Cleary at (509) 963-2152 or email
