Advisory Committees to the Vice President for Student Affairs

Comprised of undergraduate and graduate student representatives, administrators, and faculty, these committees are designed to offer input to the Vice President for Student Affairs about the Notre Dame campus climate for students, especially related to topics around diversity and inclusion. The committees themselves will not adopt policy nor serve as official governing bodies. Instead, the goal of these committees is to assist Student Affairs in gathering information about our campus climate so we can remain attuned and responsive to student questions, concerns, and needs.  Both of these committees meet separately twice a semester.
