“Words cannot express how immensely honored and humbled I am to be vice president for the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity,” said Robert L. Solomon, Esq.
“I share Case Western Reserve’s desire to be an inclusive community in which everyone feels safe, respected and valued, and I am thrilled to pursue these ideals under the leadership of nationally renowned thought leaders like President Barbara R. Snyder and Provost Ben Vinson.”
Solomon served at Ohio State on the office’s executive leadership team and helped execute policies and practices aimed at enhancing the institution’s culture, climate and curriculum with regard to inclusive excellence. He also worked with multiple university offices—among them enrollment services, undergraduate education, human resources and student life—in developing and reaching diversity goals.
Solomon succeeds Marilyn Mobley, PhD, a professor of English who served more than a decade as Case Western Reserve’s inaugural vice president for inclusion, diversity and equal opportunity.
Joy Bostic, PhD, an associate professor of religious studies and founding director of the minor in African and African American Studies, has served as interim vice president since July.
