Advancing Diversity and Inclusion at Syracuse University
A Status Report on the Short-Term Recommendations Made by the Chancellor’s Workgroup on Diversity and Inclusion
The University has released its latest status report detailing progress on recommendations by the University-wide Chancellor’s Workgroup on Diversity and Inclusion to create a more welcoming, inclusive campus.
In the fall of 2015, Chancellor Kent Syverud announced the creation of a new University-wide Chancellor’s Workgroup on Diversity and Inclusion.
The Chancellor’s Workgroup, co-chaired by Francine D’Amico, associate professor in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, and Barry L. Wells, special assistant to the Chancellor, was tasked with developing solutions on how to further create a more diverse and inclusive climate at the University.
In March 2016, the Chancellor’s Workgroup provided recommendations directly to Chancellor Syverud, who shared them with the campus community. Implementation of those recommendations by University leadership continues.
The recommendations and the status of each can be read here.
