  • The scheduling of education and information sessions and the development of educational courses and workshops for faculty and staff on university non-discrimination, Title IX reporting, prevention and investigation policies and procedures, and fostering a diverse and inclusive campus culture.
  • The reorganization of the Office of Multicultural Affairs to better support academic success, including a three-day on-boarding program for multicultural, first generation and international students.
