Diversity Councils, Committees, and Commissions



Welcome to Coop Di Leu U’s CCC menu of courses! Here is where you get support for managing diverse perspectives and agendas. It’s not an easy thought or task, but our approaches will provide light where you most need it. Get ready to understand how responsibility and authority have distinctively different meanings. Learn how to align your committee’s work with the institution’s context instead of content written for public reference. Because your work as a committee or council chair is likely NOT your primary role, it would be best to browse all the course offerings before choosing. Get what you need first, then sharpen your skills in other realms of CCC leadership. Core questions addressed among all courses are:

  • What drives the need for my council, committee, or commission?

  • How do I align the visions of my CCC among my members?

  • Who should the CCC expect to impact?

  • Where should my leadership set precedence?


The CCC lineup is heavily designed with the H.U.S.T.L.E. model for transformative diversity leadership & education. Participants will incorporate patterns of thought and behaviors essential to transformative leadership of diverse interests. Your experience from these courses will engage you with others who have made mistakes, experienced success, and are willing to share what they’ve learned for your benefit! Expect to begin engagement very soon after registering for your course, even before the official start date! You’ll get more than expected because we believe you got this!
