Campus Services DEI Initiative

Our DEI Initiative

Dartmouth's Campus Services division is making Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) a priority. Our leadership team is excited to collaborate with all employees to improve our work culture and celebrate the diversity we all bring to the College.

Our overall goal is to create a work culture in which we listen and learn from employee experiences to make positive changes that will increase a sense of belonging, celebrate diversity, and provide equal access to resources and tools for every employee to excel. We each bring something unique to the workplace. This uniqueness is what makes us diverse and allows each one of us to contribute something of value to the division.

How Campus Services employees can participate

Employees have multiple ways to share their opinions and suggestions on improving the workplace. Here are some initial opportunities to engage.

1. Take the division-wide Campus Services survey. All employees are encouraged to take this survey will remain open through the listening sessions. Paper-copy surveys are also available for employees who don't have regular access to computers. For those who'd like assistance completing the survey, please visit Admin HR Services in the lower-level of '53 Commons.

2. Participate in small-group or individual sessions with Deo Mwano and his team members. Employees in each department will have specifically designated dates and times in which they can participate in small-group or one-on-one conversations. These sessions are voluntary and will be scheduled so all employees can participate, regardless of shifts or work days.

What is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?

Diversity is the range of different characteristics/identities and lived experiences that makes each of us unique. Diversity may include, but is not limited to, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, ability, age, religious commitment, or political perspective.

Equity is the process to ensure fair access to the resources you need to achieve individual and shared goals.

Inclusion occurs when each person feels welcome and valued; they have a sense of belonging within their organization.
