Diversity Leadership Team Update

This summer, in support of the University's commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence, President Eibeck appointed Chris Goff, Assistant Provost for Diversity and Professor of Math, Steve Jacobson, Senior Associate Vice President for Student Life, and Sondra Roeuny, Assistant Vice President for Business and Finance, to serve as a Diversity Leadership Team (DLT). These members were selected to ensure inclusiveness and collaboration across the University between faculty, students and staff, respectively.

The DLT has been charged with two tasks: to work with the Academic Council to explore forming a committee related to diversity, and to develop a Diversity Implementation Plan. This work is the next step in implementing recommendations in the 2012 final report from the Strategic Task Force on Diversity and Inclusive Excellence. Several recommended strategies of the prior report already have been accomplished or are underway, such as support for at-risk students, a major component of the Student Success Initiative and faculty hiring guidelines.
