Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council

Texas A&M College of Dentistry is in the process of establishing its Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council (DIAC), which will be comprised of corporate and civic representatives whose activities reflect their support for the College and for diversity and inclusion. 

In addition, faculty, staff, and student representatives will join the external members of the council. The purpose of the DIAC is to review strategies, initiatives, and recommendations from the IDEA Committee and to report their findings and feedback to the Director of Diversity.
