Equity and Diversity Committee

The Equity and Diversity Committee fosters an open dialogue among CalArts students, faculty and staff and addresses issues relating to equity and diversity on our campus and beyond. The mission of the Equity and Diversity Committee is to support diversity at CalArts through interaction, education, and practice.
