What is the Campus Inclusion Team (CIT)?
The Campus Inclusion Team (CIT) provides support and resources to any student with a concern about diversity, equity, and inclusion. This may include concerns about actions perceived as discriminatory against aspects of identity such as race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, pregnancy, disability, genetic information, status as a U.S. veteran, service in the U.S. military, sexual orientation, gender identity, and associational preferences. The CIT is a partnership between Student Care and Assistance within the Office of the Dean of Students and the Center for Diversity and Enrichment.
How does the CIT work?
The Campus Inclusion Team will listen to student concerns and help identify potential solutions. This process is designed to provide as much confidentiality as possible. Some students may need to be referred to other offices if there is the potential that a university policy has been violated or a crime has been committed.
CIT staff will:
- Provide relevant information, including University policies and procedures, issues of free speech and academic freedom, etc.
- Assist in identification of potential options, both formal and informal
- Assist in development of a plan to resolve the situation
- Make referrals to other offices and resources
- Collect data on the types of concerns raised
- Share data and trends with the campus community
What CIT doesn’t do:
- Conduct investigations
- Impose discipline
