Diversity in Action Committee

The Diversity in Action Committee, first began in 2017 and revitalized in 2021, is a volunteer group of students, faculty and staff who focus on ways to foster diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and accessibility (DEIBA) in theatre at Binghamton University. 


Spring 2022 Programming 

Theatre’s Diversity in Action Committee will be meeting before Spring Classes begin to determine programming and events for the coming semester. Check back in January 2022!

Your thoughts, ideas and concerns - heard!

A big part of the work we're doing is making sure voices are heard on issues of DEIBA in theatre. Everyone is encouraged to fill out out the Feedback Form for DEIBA in Theatre with the Diversity in Action Leadership Team and/or General Committee. It is currently monitored by the committee’s faculty facilitator, Jane Elliott.

In this form, you will have the option to write *anonymously* OR to enter your name and contact information. If you write your contact information, you will also be able to indicate who you are willing to have your concerns shared with, and whether you would like someone from our Leadership Team to reach back out to you. 

Who's involved?

Everyone is welcome to our general committee events at any time. Currently, there is a leadership team working on developing programming, mission and function of this committee within the theatre department.

Leadership Team Members: Andrew Ajaka, Patrick Saint Ange, Kari Bayait, Lakshmi Bulathsinghala, Julianne Darden, Kae Duval, Jane Elliott, Tommy Iafrate, Klaire Martinez, Ruby McEwen, Samuel Elikem Nyamuame, Julia Rakus, Barbara Wolfe
