The President's Diversity Council is one of Caltech's administrative committees. Administrative committees are established by the president for the purpose of advising the administration on policy and procedural matters in a given area. When an administrative committee is established, the president designates a member of the administration to oversee the committee. Administrative committees are established (and may be disbanded) according to the needs of the president and the administrator through whom the committee reports.
The President's Diversity Council reports to the president through the provost. The committee chair will inform the president and the provost of the committee's deliberations and recommendations.
