The Diversity Committee reviews all interests directly related to the issues of diversity on the SMU campus. These interests include but are not limited to minority student admissions, minority student retention, and the needs and issues of organizations defined as Multicultural, Religious, and/or Special Interest. Many members of the committee sit in on meetings of organizations defined under these categories. The Diversity Committee is also tasked with representing SMU to the outside community, going out into Dallas and providing service and recruitment. Finally, the Diversity Committee provides a definition of “diversity” through actions that show issues of diversity at SMU are beyond that of just race or ethnicity and encompass a much larger realm.
