At Pitt, we are dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment where all feel welcome. To help make this commitment a reality, the University hosts many faculty and staff organizations, such as:
- Equipoise serves the needs of Black faculty members, administrators, staff employees, and students.
- The Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Advocacy Committee of the University Senate advocates for equity and inclusion in University practices, policies, and programs.
- The Provost's Advisory Committee on Women's Concerns (PACWC) seeks to ensure a productive educational and work environment for faculty, staff, and students, particularly in areas related to women's concerns.
- The Staff Council serves as a center for input and dissemination of information and provides a means of communication between staff and other members of the Pitt community. SAC recently established a Diversity and Inclusion subcommittee to focus on the University climate.
