Department Life Committee

The Department Life Committee (DLC) is an LPL-based group consisting of faculty members, research scientists, and graduate students.

Responsibilities

The main focus of the DLC is to assure and maintain a welcoming and equitable working environment for those working in planetary science at the University of Arizona. We meet as a group a few times per semester as needed to discuss the general state of and feelings within the planetary science department. Primarily, our discussion resides around issues that have been brought to our attention by members of the department, and we seek to provide safe, impactful, and useful solutions to these problems where possible. Anyone in the Department is welcome to bring issues of concern to any member of the DLC, and we will try to resolve the problem and/or direct the person to appropriate Department and University resources.
