Student Inclusion Advocacy Committee (SIAC)

The Wesleyan Council on Student Affairs recognizes that within the full senate and on our campus, there is lacking representation for a range of student identifying within the black community, the Latinx community, the LGBT community, the disabled community, the Muslim community, and/or intersections of these identities.

In an effort to acknowledge and address this lack of representation, the 2016 term of WCSA under the Choate administration passed a bill to form a new eight-member committee under the name of Student Inclusion Advocacy Committee. The goals of this committee will be to work within WCSA and with offices on campus to identify and address issues underrepresented students on campus face.

Chair: Ryan Bishop ’18
