The TCU Faculty Assembly will meet Thursday with hopes to move forward on a proposal to add a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Essential Competency to TCU’s Core Curriculum.

To get a chance to vote on the DEI curriculum addition, 20 percent of TCU full-time faculty members need to be in attendance of a quorum, TCU Faculty Senate Secretary Jan Quesada said in an email sent to faculty.

In order for an electronic vote on the proposals to be held, at least 140 TCU faculty members must attend Thursday’s meeting.

The end-goal of the proposal is to improve the overall campus culture, academic and student success in the workforce and for the recruitment and retainment of faculty and staff, according to supporters.

The Faculty Assembly will be held Thursday at 5 p.m. in the Brown Lupton University Union auditorium.
