Charge: The Diversity Committee (DC) serves as an advocate to the POD Network by advising members of the Core Committee on ways to sustain and improve the organization's efforts toward valuing diversity. Formed in 1993, as a result of a strong call from individuals within the membership, the Committee's goals are focused on 1) recruitment and retention of members from underrepresented groups and institutions in POD and in the faculty/instructional development community more broadly and 2) the cultivation of greater critical attention to questions of diversity in our work. Underrepresented groups are defined as, but not limited to, members who identify as racial and/or ethnic minorities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered individuals, and individuals who are disabled. Underrepresented institutions are defined as, but not limited to, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), native American tribal colleges, Hispanic serving institutions (HSIs) or Hispanic area colleges and universities (HACUs), or Minority Serving Institutions (or those aspiring to become MSIs).
