After consideration of this year’s campus Climate Study results, Marquette announced today that Provost Dan Myers created an Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion.

“As we look thoughtfully at the results of the campus Climate Study and plan strategically for how we address issues of diversity and inclusion at Marquette, it is clear that we need a more visible and empowered office and leader,” Myers said in a university news brief.

William Welburn, assistant vice provost for diversity and inclusion, was appointed by Myers to his new role – executive director for diversity and inclusion. The new role puts him on the University Leadership Council, makes him chair of the Diversity Advisory Committee and co-chair of the President’s Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion.

Ed de St. Aubin, associate professor of psychology and co-chair of the President’s Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion, said he thinks Welburn is the right person to lead the new office.

“I’ve worked with Dr. Welburn on a variety of committees at the university, and I’ve always been impressed with his passion for and knowledge of these important issues,” de St. Aubin said in the university news brief.

Welburn will also lead the campus Climate Study initiative, co-chair the Committee on the Recruitment and Retention of Native American and Other Underrepresented Minority Students and serve as an ex-officio member of the University Academic Senate Committee on Equity and Diversity.

 

“By creating this centralized, standalone office and empowering William to lead, we can be assured things are actually going to happen – that’s very exciting,” de St. Aubin said in the university news brief.
