Diversity and Social Justice at Mills

Diversity and Social Justice Committee

The Mills College Diversity and Social Justice Committee (DSJC) promotes diversity and social justice within every aspect of the academic, co-curricular, residential, and administrative life of the College. To that end, the DC works to create proactive, sustainable strategies to generate and institutionalize attention to diversity in relation to race, ethnicity, gender/gender identity, religious, and spiritual beliefs, class, age, color, sexual orientation, ability, immigrant status, and national origin. The DC also works to address inequalities arising from any differential distribution of power, resources, and privilege at Mills, and to support initiatives that enable students, faculty, and staff to engage in social change leading to a more just and inclusive society.

The Committee is composed of members appointed by the President of Mills College. Committee membership includes not only faculty and staff members, but also appointed alumnae/i and student representatives.
