REI Steering Committee
The Race, Equity and Inclusion (REI) Steering Committee actively works to dismantle systemic racism and structural inequality across the BMCC community including students, faculty, staff, contractors, and collaborators. The changes we seek in regard to equity, inclusion and justice will require our collective work. We commit to reach out to, embrace, and amplify the voices of all members of the BMCC community to design and implement mechanisms that hold BMCC, our leadership, our community and ourselves accountable. Working as the conscience of the College, REI’s goal is to develop actionable items for BMCC to prioritize, build upon and institutionalize. We seek transformational change, for today and for the future.
- To “move the needle” in a measurable, equitable and sustainable manner
- Address systemic inequality and inequities; and
- Work to support all members of our campus community.
While some of these goals will require long-term changes, we recognize that time is of the essence – so we will work expeditiously to present both actionable short-term and long-term recommendations concerning everything relating to race, equity and inclusion.
Under the guidance of the BMCC President, the Race, Equity and Inclusion (REI) Steering Committee is dedicated to exploring ways to dismantle systemic racism and structural inequality by advancing equity, inclusion and justice for students, staff, faculty and our communities. Working as the conscience of the College, the REI strives to bring in and amplify the voices of all members of the institution, with actionable items for the College to prioritize and institutionalize. The REI Steering Committee seeks change, for today and for the future.
