Diversity Advisory Committee
 

Mission Statement
The role of the Psi Chi Diversity Advisory Committee (DAC) shall be to ensure that the Society reflects the rich diversity of people and perspectives in psychology. Although the focus of diversity initiatives within Psi Chi may vary over time and circumstance, it is likely that the major initiatives of the DAC will address issues of race, culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and physical ability. The DAC shall oversee and assess all initiatives related to diversity.

Purpose Statement
