Each member campus sends one faculty representative and its Director of Multicultural/Minority Affairs (or campus equivalent) to serve on the Committee for Institutional Commitment to Educational Equity (CICEE). The committee sponsors the annual Students of Color Leadership Conference and the bi-annual Black Studies Conference. Additionally, they inform and address the GLCA community on issues regarding diversity and educational equity.
