The Diversity Council is a school-wide group composed of faculty and staff who join with senior management in a collaborative effort to create strategic plans and goals for diversity in alignment with our Christian mission and vision. This involves implementing programs like implicit bias training, the Dean's Speaker Series, open conversations, academic panels, and more, that increase and enhance student, faculty, and staff diversity at all levels of Caruso Law.
