Faculty & Staff DEI Committees

Faculty Assembly Women’s Committee (FAWC)

The UCCS Faculty Assembly Women's Committee was organized in 1992 by women faculty as an informal networking system. An existing network of women and faculty who met regularly formed the core. The committee is associated with the University of Colorado Faculty Council Women’s Committee and continues to address the concerns of women-identifying faculty.



Faculty Equity and Inclusion Committee (FEIC)

The Faculty Equity and Inclusion Committee (FEIC) addresses the needs of faculty of color on the UCCS campus and advocates for equity, diversity, and inclusion. FEIC advocates for social justice on behalf of minority faculty, staff, and students, and responds to societal issues that affect the campus community. Furthermore, FEIC provides a space for faculty to discuss campus climate, issues related to hiring, retention, and intellectual freedom.



Faculty Assembly Disability Committee (DisC)

DisC provides information for faculty at UCCS regarding disability, with a focus on better including and accommodating students with disabilities in your courses. These resources will be of use to faculty with disabilities and their allies, and any faculty member interested in diversity and inclusion.




Staff & Faculty PRIDE Committees

The purpose of both the Staff and Faculty Pride Committees is the advancement of and advocacy for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) community of the university through increasing the visibility of LGBTQIA+ groups as a presence and resource within UCCS and the wider community; advising on the inclusivity of LGBTQIA+ concerns within UCCS policies and procedures; supporting the education of UCCS staff, students and faculty specific to the LGBTQIA+ community; and supporting and advocating for UCCS LGBTQIA+ staff and students.

Women Identifying Staff Committee (WiSC)

The organizing group for the Women Identifying Staff Committee (WISC) was born out of shared experiences at the CU Women’s Succeeding Symposium and a desire to foster at UCCS the same energy and focus on issues uniquely faced by women in the University. We strive to create a safe space for women identifying staff members to voice frustrations, concerns, seek information and resources, find mentorship and validation and will in turn work to elevate the needs of women identifying staff members to campus and system leadership.
