Diversity Action Committee

What is the DAC? 

Within the larger vision of the University, to model grace-filled community, we aim to model and actively live this out within our disciplines in the School of Health Sciences (SHS). The SHS Diversity Action Committee is a team of SHS students, staff, and faculty committed to actively contributing to the ongoing work of diversity within SHS. Our work includes, but is not limited to, building community, examining curriculum, and compiling resources, events, and opportunities for SHS to access regarding diversity.
