Faculty and Staff Participation

Park Diversity AdvocatesPark Diversity Advocates
Faculty, staff and administrators spearheading diversity efforts in the Park School.

The following faculty, staff, and administrators are volunteers who have been charged with bringing issues and opportunities to meetings and to encourage others to be likewise involved.

Potential outcomes may include:

  • identification of new scholarship, internship, or contest opportunities for minority students and disseminating that information;
  • identification of new contacts for the recruiting of minority faculty and staff members;
  • monitoring and promoting your program/department’s diversity initiatives and developing a short “state of the program” diversity report at the end of the year.
