The Joint Commissions Committee (JCC) unites the ASUW Diversity Commissions in an effort to better serve their constituents. Chaired by the Director of Diversity Efforts and made up of the Commission Directors and representatives from other student organizations across campus, the JCC strives to collaborate on increasing campus awareness of diversity related issues and events. The JCC's weekly meetings are open to all students, and the committee invites all students and university community members to come and let their voice be heard.


JCC was created to:

  • Provide a time for commission directors to work as a team, both as commission directors and with their board liaison.
  • Promote Inter-Commission Collaboration.
  • Provide an avenue for students to get involved with the different commissions.
  • Promote learning about intersectionalities.
  • Engage and educate the campus community about diversity through advocacy and programming.
