Under the guidance of its strategic goals and objectives, IU Southeast aims to develop an effective coordination mechanism by capitalizing on the rich diversity resources throughout the campus. There are four major layers in this extensive and inclusive coalition for diversity.
1. Leadership: The Chancellor and Vice Chancellors provide direction and strategy.
2. Diversity Advisory Council: A broadly representative thinktank composed of selected volunteers who are committed to a comprehensive concept of diversity and able to bring experience, expertise, or insights to campus-wide planning on diversity initiatives.
3. Diversity Coordinators: Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Equity & Diversity personnel function as a bridge between the central leadership and various task forces and participants. They are responsible for facilitating communication and coordinating diversity-related projects and activities.
4. Diversity Task Forces: Various action teams on campus that work with other individuals and interest groups to implement IU Southeast strategic goals and school/division/unit diversity plans and/or reach out to the community.
