Diversity and inclusion efforts

Senior adviser to the president for diversity


An expert on diversity and inclusion efforts, particularly in U.S. higher education. Current focuses include affirmative action in public employment and public education in states where constitutional amendments/state referendums have resulted in banning preferential treatment on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, and national origin; strategies to create a more diverse and inclusive organization; and First Amendment concerns related to free speech and “hate speech” on college campuses.
