DEIJ Community of Practice


The College’s DEIJ Community of Practice (CBS DCoP) is modeled on the University’s Diversity Community of Practice. Departments and units within the college selected representatives to participate. The goal is to facilitate information sharing across the College. It’s one way we can learn from one another and increase the impact of our efforts. The CBS CoP meets monthly.
