Leadership in Diversity Committee (LID)

The Leadership in Diversity Committee seeks to foster diversity in all its variations, while assisting multicultural clubs, organizations and any interested individuals in promoting their message of diversity at Union College and in the Schenectady community. The main objectives are to represent any existing student multicultural clubs and organizations, to encourage collaboration among Union College clubs and groups, organizations or interested people and to serve as a forum for representatives to communicate any concerns, programming and/or initiatives to the rest of the body.
