Wichita State Acts for Diversity

Associated Press - November 17, 2015 10:46 am

A student-run consulting firm at Wichita State University is giving undergraduates a chance to gain experience and make mistakes before they enter the workplace.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Wichita State University has named an assistant dean to a new position for diversity.

The Wichita Eagle reports WSU President John Bardo on Monday named Marche Fleming-Randle, assistant dean of the university’s Fairmount College of Liberal Arts & Science, to become assistant to the president for diversity. University spokesman Lou Heldman says Fleming-Randle, who was also appointed recently as adviser to the student governing association, has considerable credibility with students.

Fleming-Randle says in a prepared statement that her job is to move the university “forward on diversity.”

The announcement comes amid several student concerns, including lack of staff diversity.

Student groups are planning a protest during Wednesday’s public meeting of the Kansas Board of Regents at Wichita State. They are complaining about several issues, including diversity and scholarship opportunities.
