The Newhouse School receives advice and feedback from our IDEA Advisory Board, made up of dedicated and passionate alumni with a commitment to diversity and inclusion issues.
The Newhouse Advisory Board and Newhouse 44 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee is an ad-hoc panel made up of members from the Newhouse Advisory Board and the Newhouse 44, and co-chaired by a member from each board. The committee was formed in fall 2020 by Dean Mark Lodato to advise him and act as a sounding board in efforts to ensure that the Newhouse School is a safe, welcoming space to learn and grow for students of all backgrounds. The dean also consults with the committee on the recruitment of diverse faculty, staff and students from underrepresented groups.
