Letter from the Director

We are here to promote initiatives that support the University’s commitment to equity and diversity. Our office works to transform the University of Minnesota by creating a strong community of scholars that includes engaged, dynamic, and diverse faculty. To achieve our academic mission, we strive to identify and attract the most promising individuals representing diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

We aspire to be an inclusive community in which scholars of every nationality, religion, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, political viewpoint, socioeconomic status, and veteran status can thrive.

We work closely with academic units to understand the needs of faculty and students and help foster a departmental culture that is supportive of everyone.

I look forward to serving the University of Minnesota by creating new partnerships and programs and by empowering the university community to support innovative scholarship, teaching, and service.

Sincerely,
