Article by CWRU Administrators Stress the Importance of Collaboration Between Chief Diversity Officers and Senior International Officers

Vice President for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity Marilyn S. Mobley, PhD, and Associate Provost for International Affairs David Fleshler, JD, co-authored an article that appears in the June 2015 edition of Insight Into Diversity. The article focuses on the importance of collaboration between university diversity officers and international officers.

 

In the article, Fleshler and Mobley note that at Case Western Reserve University the chief diversity officer and the senior international officer “have developed strategic plans for their respective offices that iterate their interconnectedness in the university’s priorities and include partnering on various intellectual and programmatic initiatives, as well as developing new ways to collaborate.”

 

Mobley and Flesh​l​er detailed ways in which their offices collaborate and note that often their offices deal with similar issues because both students of color and international students face some of the same challenges as underrepresented groups on university campuses.

 

The article appears on pages 16 & 17 of the June 2015 issue of INSIGHT Into Diversity. You can download the article here.

FACULTY DIVERSITY


The Office of Faculty Diversity provides support to Faculty, Departments and Schools, around issues of faculty recruitment, retention and diversity and inclusion training.

 

The Faculty Diversity Officer reviews allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination (gender, sexual orientation, racial, ADA) and also serves as a facilitator for addressing faculty diversity issues in areas related to faculty duties.

 

DIVERSITY PROGRAMMING

Diversity Awareness Training

We provide diversity awareness workshops and consultation services for students, faculty, and staff. In some cases, we develop a program specific to goals, participants, and time frame in order to accommodate the different classes, departments, offices, and student groups that request training.

Some sessions may be conducted jointly with other offices on campus.

Train the Champion

Train the Champion aims to foster an environment that embraces diversity; assist with retention and recruitment of faculty, staff and students; encourage overall workplace satisfaction; and foster a sustained dialogue on diversity, with specific focus on issues in higher education and at Case Western Reserve. The eight-month program consists of monthly sessions and additional brown bag lunches to facilitate further, less formal discussions.

 

 

Power of Diversity Lecture Series
