Who Are the DEI Leaders?

Each area reporting to the Provost has established a leadership position to identify and articulate goals and priorities specific to their college or program, in consultation with their dean. These leaders will work closely with diversity councils, the Associate Provost for Inclusive Strategies and Equity Initiatives, deans, and academic unit heads.
