The Advocacy Committee aims to strengthen the diverse and inclusive community at Carnegie Mellon. Our mission is to create an atmosphere in which every student feels supported and able to succeed. The Advocacy Committee puts a special emphasis on enhancing the experience of those a part of underrepresented communities, such as students of color, LGBTQ+ students, and first-generation students. The Committee also focuses on sexual assault and relationship violence prevention. The committee is open to any undergraduate student who is interested in our work.

Current Initiatives

Advocacy Committee will continue to work on the Diversity White Paper which was started in Spring 2016. In the paper we will propose structural solutions to the marginalization of students apart of historically oppressed communities.
