Diversity Action Committee

 Mission Statement

Diversity Action Committee is a committee composed of faculty and students of Siena College, working together to increase knowledge of diversity and to effect positive change within the Siena community concerning issues related to gender, race, ethnicity, class, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, and disability on campus. Its purpose is to provide information and new perspectives on these issues; to improve personal and working relationships among our community, notably raising awareness of and acting in prevention against sexism, racism, ageism, classism, heterosexism, ableism and other forms of categorical prejudice and discrimination in support of the College’s Human Rights policy; and to deepen knowledge and appreciation of diversity through integrated courses and focused programs.



DAC Co-Chairs:
