As Case Western Reserve University moves forward in its search for a Vice President of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equal Opportunity, a Web site describing the new position and the search process is now available. The Web site, which went live this week, includes the original announcement, a job description, the names of search committee members, links to diversity resources on campus, and a link for community input.
In addition, the Web site includes a letter from Rhonda Y. Williams, chair of the search committee.
She discusses how the new Vice President of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equal Opportunity, and Diversity position represents "an encouraging and pioneering time" in the university's history, and how the person selected to fill this new cabinet-level position will be expected to "bring visionary, skilled, and committed leadership to advancing the university's goals to create a campus climate and an academic culture that embraces, promotes, and sustains diversity as fundamental to institutional excellence."
