Dean's Advisory Committee on Equity and Diversity (DACED)

The Dean’s Advisory Committee on Equity and Diversity was established in 2007 to help shape, advance, and celebrate HGSE’s vision for a diverse, equitable and inclusive campus. As such, DACED advises the Dean on how the HGSE community can eradicate institutional barriers to access and equity, and thus increase experiences of inclusion and belonging for students, staff and faculty.
