Terms of Reference

The Advisory Committee supports the Director in implementing the ODEPD mandate of serving as a centralized resource to all members of the university community. The committee assists the Director in identifying and analyzing systemic issues, provides advice regarding reports on equity and diversity issues, and thereby facilitates change by helping the Director to raise policy and other issues for consideration at appropriate university committees. In addition, committee members serve as ambassadors for the ODEPD and help to promote the ODEPD's work in their own constituent groups.

The committee's membership will include representation from all university constituencies: academic staff, support staff, administration and students. The range of the members’ expertise will reflect the broad mandate of the office.

Meetings will be scheduled by the ODEPD Director as needed, but normally they will take place at least twice in the fall term and twice in the winter term.
