  • JEID-related policies and processes for the College
  • External fundraising opportunities for broad and impactful JEID initiatives
  • Synergizing cross-divisional JEID programming, events, and initiatives
  • Building infrastructure for JEID-related assessment
  • JEID issues related to faculty search and hiring
  • Other structural and strategic issues with JEID implications
