DEI Committee

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee works to ensure equitable access and inclusion of opportunities, benefits and resources for all members of the Horned Frog family. The committee’s charge is to monitor all existing and future initiatives regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus; actively participate in developing a vision for diversity, equity, and inclusion that represents the entire campus community; and make recommendations to the Chancellor based on this vision.

TCU’s DEI committee comprises six working groups and guides the University’s efforts regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion. Each group is charged with gathering data identifying areas of improvement, and providing recommendations to support the university’s diversity strategic plan.

Working Groups

  • Recruitment and retention of students from under-represented communities
  • Recruitment and retention of faculty and staff of under-represented communities
  • Curriculum review
  • Campus Culture
  • Training for Faculty Staff and students
  • Engagement with the Community
