The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) student committee at Syracuse University’s School of Architecture is a group of elected representatives from each undergraduate and graduate year from an array of backgrounds who have a shared interest in further creating a diverse, inclusive and more equitable academic environment and discipline. The committee was established to foster more open communication, representation, and engagement, providing students a platform to voice their concerns with the dean and School administration, create educational and social programming and collaborate with faculty and staff. DEI serves as a space for students to participate in crucial conversations and decisions for the future of the School.
