Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

Committee Chair: Nancy Martin, Bowie State University

ACCED-I Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: 
ACCED-I is guided by principles of mutual respect, common purpose, and equity.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a sense of community and inclusion for all our members.
