The purpose of the Diversity Equity Inclusion Committee (DEIC) is to serve and advise our CSD Centers, as well as our corporate staff in regards to issues relating to cultural
diversity, gender bias, ageism, disability, inclusion and overall championing racial equality. The DEIC strives to promote a transformative experience that leverages diversity and inclusion to its fullest potential ensuring that every student and staff member can have a sense of belonging and influence on their campus.

Provide an inclusive environment that reflects diversity and inclusion for everyone.

The Diversity Equity Inclusion and Committee seeks to advance the conversation on issues related to cultural equity and diversity. The committee serves as a conduit for social change by being a platform for culturally based discussion, policy critique and review, and networking opportunities amongst Career Systems Development Corps operating communities.
