President's Committee on Gender and Sexuality

The President's Committee on Gender and Sexuality consists of six faculty and six staff members serving three-year terms with an option to renew; three students serving one-year terms with an option to renew; and five ex-officio members (or their designees) based on their university position. The group’s primary responsibilities are to make recommendations to the president regarding gender-related and sexuality issues and opportunities on campus and in the community that impact Northern students, faculty and staff.

In addition, four ex-officio members are appointed from the President's Committee on Diversity.
