The committee serves the Senate’s and the College’s commitment to continual reflection by giving deep consideration to the structures, policies, and culture of the institution. By working toward a decolonized academy, the committee will review and respond to campus-wide matters and give recommendations that aim to alleviate the cycle of colonization.
- Begin a process of acknowledgment, reconciliation, and healing.
- Identify the structures, policies, and regulations that may perpetuate a colonized hierarchy and discuss ways to reduce their harm.
- Respond to state- and college-wide undertakings and propositions.
- Examine inherited constructs and culture and their effects on the campus and its people.
