Purpose of the UNITY COUNCIL
The Unity Council serves to create a more diverse and inclusive university community. Diversity encompasses a multitude of dimensions and identities, including race, gender identity and expression, economic status, sexual preference, religion, immigration status, national origin, and more. To achieve this purpose the council strives to:
o Sponsor programs and activities that publicly celebrate the diverse communities and cultures within our campus.
o Foster mutual respect, appreciation, understanding, and collaboration among the members of the Cal Maritime community.
o Inform the university community about historic contributions of diverse communities to California, the United States and our global society.
o Review data and information that assesses the university's "campus climate" and make recommendations for improvement.
o Participate in campus strategic planning.
o Uphold the Principles of Community as described in the Student Handbook
