Faculty Council Committee on Racial and Ethnic Equity offers COVID-19 message
In video, faculty members express support of community, speak against racism
The CU Faculty Council’s Committee on Racial and Ethnic Equity (CREE) has teamed with colleagues from other committees to produce a video message in support of the campus community during the pandemic. Faculty from across the four CU campuses also speak out against racism and the disparate health impacts of the COVID-19 virus on marginalized communities.
CREE considers concerns of ethnic minority faculty, including:
- assessing the cultural climate of the university as it pertains to opportunities for ethnic minority faculty for academic advancement, productivity and appropriate compensation;
- making recommendations for creating an academic environment that fosters the academic success of both ethnic minority faculty and ethnic minority students;
- working to assure fairness in the recruitment and retention of ethnic minority faculty and students;
- developing support networks and recommending policy to address the needs of ethnic minority faculty and students.
