The Diversity Council is a space where students can bring not only their feedback or concerns, but also ideas and solutions. It's a space that strives to be proactive, inclusive, and supportive. The Mission of the Diversity Council is to promote diversity and inclusion in the University of Baltimore School of Law community, to react swiftly, thoughtfully, and decisively to emerging issues affecting the School of Law, and to cultivate a welcoming educational environment for individuals of all backgrounds and lifestyles at the law school. Further, the Council celebrates the diversity that exists at the law school and highlights initiatives in place that foster an inclusive community by providing various trainings and events throughout the semester.
The Council is comprised of 13 student representatives. These students represent diverse student organizations and the at-large student body.
