The DEIB department at Fontbonne was created in June 2022 and is a branch off Multicultural Affairs (MCA). Deanna Williams is the only staff member in the department. The role that Deanna Williams has is to, “produce programs and different workshop opportunities for faculty/staff to learn more about issues surrounding DEIB”. Social Work students at Fontbonne recognized the need to conduct a Needs Assessment to evaluate how needs related to DEIB are being met on campus and if the department involved with DEIB has the resources needed.

The goals of the assessment:

1. Identify the resources needed for the DEIB department to engage in supportive practices to its community

2. Examine barriers and gaps to providing DEIB practices

3. Evaluate if community needs are being met by Fontbonne
