The Diversity and Equity Committee (DECo) supports the recruitment of underrepresented students, faculty, and staff within the Department of Teaching and Learning (T&L) across all degree programs and licensure areas. The Committee works in conjunction and coordination with T&L Academic Services, the Areas of Study, the Office of Faculty Affairs, and the Graduate and Undergraduate Studies Committees on student and faculty recruitment efforts.

The Committee also provides support for diversity‐themed programs in the Department and the College through connections with EHE’s Office of Equity, Diversity, and Global Engagement (EDGE).
