DEI Advisory Councils
The DEI Advisory Councils at FSC serve as the enduring advisory bodies to the leadership of the College. Serving at the department level, these advisory councils identify concerns and recommend and develop practical and meaningful opportunities that sustain and enrich a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through the guidance, planning, and analysis of our departmental advisory councils, the College can continue to provide a campus community of belonging.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Council of Farmingdale State College (FSC) is composed of justice-minded faculty, staff, and students who work in concert and under the guidance of the FSC Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence and Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Kevin Jordan. The Advisory Council supports and advocates for DEI-related initiatives that emerge from both FSC and SUNY. Lastly, the Advisory Council serves as a space to foster belongingness through programming and campus-wide representation including efforts to ameliorate DEI-related concerns that are brought to the Council's attention.
The mission of the FSC Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Council is to:
- Promote an atmosphere of belongingness and inclusivity throughout FSC.
- Support the DEI-related efforts of FSC and SUNY.
- Provide a platform for all those throughout the diverse FSC community to raise their voice around issues of DEI.
A departmental culture that values the tenets of respect, diversity, equity, and inclusion, all the while ensuring a sense of belonging for faculty, staff, and students.
To establish a nursing department whose curriculum and culture embodies inclusion and equity, values humanism, and intersectionality, and promotes a holistic environment in which students and faculty can learn, work, and grow together. Through education and intentional focus, we promote a just society that rejects discrimination, is free from racism, and is safe for all its members.
