DEI Pillar Committee
Our goal is to empower and educate all members of our community to facilitate a campus culture where diversity, equity, and inclusion are respected and intentionally valued. We acknowledge that social injustice and inequality exist, and we actively persist in removing barriers.
Herkimer College's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Pillar Committee is made up of representatives from various College stakeholder groups working collaboratively to promote equality and cultural awareness on campus. Through social events, speaker series, and other programming, the DEI Committee aims to foster a climate of inclusion and understanding among Herkimer College's students, faculty, and staff.
