In the late spring, CDI will survey the campus on issues relating to diversity and inclusion and will present its findings to the campus community.
It is never too late to join CDI; we encourage students, faculty and staff to become members. If you have any questions about CDI, please contact Millie Gonzalez at email@example.com.
CDI has its own Twitter account. If you would like to publicize any events, activities or news related to diversity and inclusion on our campus or outside of our campus, email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
