Collaboration Council (CoCo)

The purpose of the Collaboration Council (CoCo) is to uphold the SEISMIC Principles of Operation, promote communication and coordination across the Working Groups, provide accountability for the Working Groups, and ensure appropriate connections are being made to SEISMIC campus teams. The Collaboration Council (CoCo) has one representative from each Working Group and two SEISMIC members at-large to represent institutional interests, for a total of 6 members. This Council guides the activities of the collaboration.

Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is a group of eight nationally recognized experts in equity and inclusion in STEM who are not already involved in SEISMIC. This group of experts provides project leadership with important feedback as details of equity measures and plans for coordinated experiments emerge. The Advisory Council also helps to represent SEISMIC to the larger higher education community.
