In January 2012, Provost Jennifer Turpin and Vice Provost
Mary Wardell-Ghirarduzzi launched and established the University Council on
Diversity and Inclusion. The first co-chairs appointed by the Vice Provost to lead the council are University
Registrar and Associate Dean, Robert Bromfield; Director of
Operations, Aouie Rubio; and Associate Dean, Shabnam Koirala-Azad.
Fall 2013 the council hosted it's first university-wide event with
School of Education's Dean Kevin Kumashiro. The council continues to
grow and review campus initiatives and communicate diversity efforts as
the campus climate changes.
