The LWTech Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Council (EDIC) is an active council serving LWTech since 2015.
The EDI Council supports and advocates for the vision and values around equity, diversity and inclusion. We seek to provide leadership for ongoing learning, discussion, dialogue and understanding about equity, diversity and inclusion by all members of the LWTech campus community, including students, staff, faculty and administration.
It is a recommending body; it shall serve to advise the President and the Executive Cabinet on equity, diversity and inclusion goals, strategies, plans, policy and projects. This Council shall be accountable for reviewing and updating the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Plan (EDIP) as necessary and will carry out the work of the EDIP.
