Diversity

The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) seeks to encourage diversity and multiculturalism among its faculty, staff, and student body.

A diversity committee, charged with becoming knowledgeable about the college's diversity plans and efforts and serving as liaison with Inclusive Illinois was established in 2017. The 2017-2018 diversity committee members include Tony Franklin; Debbie Malloch; Thomas Poole; Sandra Rodriguez Zas (chair); Megan Swoboda; Jesse Thompson; and Yuanhui Zhang. 

Please contact these committee members with comments and questions about diversity and inclusion issues such as security and safety, resources, and training. To the end of encouraging diversity and multiculturalism, the college has committed itself to a strategic plan. You can view the abridged version of our strategic plan for increasing diversity on our Academic Programs website.
