Diversity and Inclusion

The Diversity and Inclusion Task Force, which was formed by President Conrado “Bobby” Gempesaw, Ph.D. in response to concerns raised by students and faculty was charged with formulating recommendations to:

  1. Ensure that training for staff and administrators and professional development opportunities for faculty are sufficiently robust in the diversity, equity and inclusivity space
  2. Recruit and retain faculty from historically underrepresented groups
  3. Incorporate diversity, equity and inclusivity into the curricula
  4. Create a more inclusive campus climate

The Task Force will regularly update the campus community on the progress being made towards these strategic goals. In addition, the Task Force will contribute to the overall campus dialogue on diversity and inclusion through:

  1. On-campus resources for students, faculty, staff, and administration
  2. Events and workshops
  3. Training in best practices
