Diversity and Inclusion Officers

Students walkingDiversity and Inclusion Officers work collaboratively with the Provost, Vice President for Institutional Diversity, and the leadership of their college to achieve the vision and strategic objectives of Diversity and Inclusivity. Officers are charged with:

  • leading in the development of initiatives and programs that support equitable opportunities for achievement and professional development of students, faculty, staff, and administrators from underrepresented/underserved populations
  • enhancing diversity and inclusivity as it relates to recruitment, promotion, and retention of historically underrepresented students, faculty, administrators, and staff
  • the implementation of initiatives that ensure rich experiences and opportunities for all students, faculty, and administrators, and staff to engage in meaningful interactions, dialogue, and reflection around diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • assessment of college-wide diversity efforts by tracking data and generating reports
  • responding to inquiries for college diversity and inclusion narratives and on-going data collection
