The Office of Institutional Diversity is pleased to announce the 2018-19 cohort of Diversity Associates.

Diversity Associates are partnered with an Office of Institutional Diversity faculty mentors to develop and implement projects that focus on one or more of the following areas: race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, national origin, disability, gender, sexual identity, age, and/or religious viewpoints.
Expected outcomes are either (1) conference proposal, article submission or book chapter, (2) a plan for pedagogical innovations including a description of initial steps completed, (3) immersive learning grant application or undergraduate research product, (4) plan for conducting a diversity dialogue, or (5) the development of an idea for a grant project or grant submission.
 
Please watch for updates about these projects in the months ahead.
