University of Kansas Creates Diversity Task Force
Associated Press - November 25, 2015 8:20 am
Faculty and staff at the University of Kansas reported declining morale because of concerns about salary, lack of support, increased workload and the state government's increasing role in running the university, according to a "climate" survey taken on the Lawrence and Edwards campuses last fall.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – The University of Kansas has created a task force on diversity efforts.
Incoming interim provost Sara Rosen announced the new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Group on Tuesday.
Sheahon Zenger, the university’s director of athletics, and Clarence Lang, chairman of the African and African-American Studies department, will co-chair the task force.
The group’s focus will include making recommendations for campus diversity training, incorporating diversity into curriculum and developing a campus strategic plan on diversity, equity and inclusion.
Rosen says additional appointments to the group will be announced later.
