Actions: The SEC reviewed the proposal at its meeting on September 21, 2018 and had a broader discussion on the University of Maryland, College Park Policy on Inclusive Language. As part of its recommendations on Providing Gender Inclusive Facilities (Senate Document #16-17-32), the Senate EDI Committee recommended that it be charged with a review of this policy in order to ensure the policy accords with the University's principles on diversity and inclusion, as well as existing policies and practices. Following approval by the Senate on September 5, 2018 and the President on September 14, 2018, the SEC determined that the EDI Committee should be charged with a review of the policy and should consider this proposal as part of its broader review. The proposal will be shared with the EDI Committee as part of Senate Document #18-19-06.
Next Step: EDI Committee Review
