The Cultural and Ethnic Diversity Board at Boise State University (CEDB)
The mission of the Cultural and Ethnic Diversity Board (CEDB) is to advocate for under-represented and/or underserved students, faculty, and staff at Boise State University and to advise the campus community on these issues in regard to employment, curriculum, scholarships, and campus climate.
The painting “Peace and Justice” by Alma Gomez serves as the CEDB logo and is available for viewing in full size at the Boise State University Student Union Building’s first floor Mission Statement
