The FEIOs serve as advocates for equity, diversity, and inclusion in the overall academic program, partnering with various constituencies inside and outside of the campus in order to support primarily the faculty but also others. The Officers advance principles of inclusive excellence in three significant domains (1) recruitment and retention of top-rate scholar-teachers (2) ongoing professional engagement and advocacy that allow faculty members to thrive throughout their careers (3) confidential consultations with faculty members as needed.
