President's Council on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

The President's Council on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion is a body comprised of FSU faculty, staff, students, and alumni that work to ensure that FSU creates and maintains a diverse, inclusive, and equitable campus for all members of the Florida State University community.

The Council's primary charge is to advance initiatives in support of the goals outlined in the Strategic Plan, approved by the Board of Trustees in October 2017, as well as the approved recommendations produced by the 2020-2021 President's Taskforce on Anti-Racism, Equity, and Inclusion. The Council is supported by two co-chairs and two administrative liaisons. Council members are divided into teams whose work is focused on specific initiatives designated for progression.
