Committee on Diversity Affairs (CODA)

The Committee on Diversity Affairs (CODA) is a sub-committee of LUCC which helps to represent all student identities, especially those that are under-represented, for decisions made in LUCC and the greater Lawrence governance process. CODA exists to support different diversity focused organizations on campus by promoting the groups’ events and interests while addressing issues of injustice as they arise, committee actively seeks the concerns of underrepresented groups on campus and challenges itself to solve those issues.
