Second Finalist for VP of Diversity and Inclusion Visits Today

By Maryland Today Staff

The second of four finalists for the university’s new position of vice president of diversity and inclusion will be on campus today for interviews and meetings with students, faculty and staff.

Katrina Wade-Golden is deputy chief diversity officer and director of implementation for the campuswide diversity, equity and inclusion strategic plan at the University of Michigan.

She will appear in an open forum for all members of the campus community from 3:30–4:15 p.m. in 1224 Edward St. John Learning and Teaching Center. A forum specifically for graduate and undergraduate students will follow from 4:15-5 p.m. in the same room. All attendees are invited to fill out a confidential candidate feedback form afterward.

Forums for the third and fourth candidates will take place on March 5 and 7, respectively. The names of those candidates will be released one day prior to their visits.

The search committee for the new vice president position, co-chaired by Lucy Dalglish, dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, and Warren Kelley, assistant vice president for student affairs, is working to schedule a possible fifth finalist’s visit to UMD.

The person hired for this new position will serve as a member of the president’s cabinet and will lead the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), which encourages and supports the efforts of units throughout the university to achieve their diversity and inclusion goals. ODI coordinates activities and programs, as well as inclusion and diversity initiatives on campus and beyond.

Maryland Today is produced by the Office of Strategic Communications for the University of Maryland community weekdays during the academic year, except for university holidays.
