The College of the Arts (COTA) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee was chartered in 2020 by students, faculty, and staff to promote diversity, equity and inclusion across all channels at Kennesaw State University.
The COTA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee supports the cultivation of learning communities that actively listens and intentionally responds to the needs of the current generation of students, faculty, and staff. We strive to be adaptable and ready to implement initiatives through shared governance, training, programming, research, and events.
We envision our students seeing themselves in the curriculum by challenging norms that have misrepresented members of marginalized backgrounds. We believe that the arts lead systemic change through invention, synthetization, and implementation across the KSU community.
The College of the Arts Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is made up of dedicated KSU students, faculty, and staff.
