President Todd appoints new Chair of the Commission on Diversity, effective July 1, 2007.

Professor Allan G. Richards of the Department of Art in the College of Fine Arts has agreed to serve a two-year term as chair of the President’s Commission on Diversity. Richards, a native of Jamaica, was educated in Jamaica and Mexico prior to obtaining his doctorate in art education at Illinois State University. He came to the University of Kentucky in 1993 as associate dean for recruitment and diversity in the Graduate School. In that capacity, he helped UK achieve significant increases in the enrollment of underrepresented groups in its graduate programs. He left the Graduate School in 1998 to join the Art Department as a full-time faculty member. He is actively interested in promoting art education in the school system. Under his leadership the Commission on Diversity will focus on following up on the recommendations made by the Task Force on Diversity and Racial Equality, and in suggesting specific actions to achieve Goal IV of the 2006-09 Strategic Plan.
