The role of the steering committee — focused on Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) — is to recommend to the Wofford College Board of Trustees a strategic plan and vision for an equitable and just Wofford for the future. The committee’s work includes collecting and reporting relevant disaggregated data, facilitating listening sessions with a variety of stakeholder groups, amplifying and building on equity work already being done, and helping build and sustain an equity-focused and equity-informed culture at Wofford.
