The Emory Commission on Racial and Social Justice is comprised of an Executive Committee, Steering Committee, and Social Justice Process Owners.
The Executive Committee, which includes the President, members of the President’s Leadership Council, the Presidents of the University Senate and Employee Council, and students, creates the university’s vision for racial and social justice that guides the work of the commission and serves as a final point of accountability for timeline, structure, and outcomes. The Executive Committee decides when a demand or initiative has been resolved.
The Steering Committee, which includes ex-officio members and student, faculty, and staff representatives, advises the Executive Committee, CRSJ Co-Chairs, and Social Justice Process Owners.
The Social Justice Process Owners develop and advance strategies to achieve racial and social justice outcomes, chair demand or initiative working groups, and assess and report on progress and overall impact of strategies. SJPOs also support the integration of racial and social justice strategies into day-to-day operations.
The agenda and minutes of the commission meeting held on April 12, 2017 are now available for review. The commission will continue to meet during the academic year to advance recommendations and action items developed by the original working groups.
