We shall create a DEI committee comprising 3 faculty members, 4 students and 1 staff member.  The committee is charged to regularly examine DEI issues pertaining.  Chair is Aixin Tan;  staff member is Margie Ebert; two additional faculty are tbd.  Student members include: Shiao Liu and Aidan Chaffin, nominated by the graduate SSO (Statistics Student Organization) and one student nominated from the undergraduate SDO (Statistics and Data Science Organization) and one student nominated by the Actuarial Science Club. 
  2. The departmental Executive Committee will annually review departmental polices related to DEI issues pertaining to the faculty.
  3. The DEO will work with the Departmental Administrator to annually review DEI issues pertaining to the staff.

Hawks of Color is a place of welcome and community building while celebrating excellence! Formerly Faculty and Staff of Color, Hawks of Color is a re-envisioned community space to support and promote conversations among historically underrepresented, global majority, and/or marginalized faculty, staff, postdocs, and students at the University of Iowa. In addition to uplifting our voices and brilliance, attendees will have an opportunity to gather with each other.
