Chancellor's announced administrative changes

On December 4, Chancellor Chopp notified the University community of some structural changes at DU that affect CME, namely the creation of a new senior leadership position, the Vice Chancellor for Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence (search portfolio site requires DU login), to whom we will eventually report.

In March, she and the Provost announced a new Senior Associate Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Excellence and Senior Advisor to the Chancellor for Diversity and External Relations (one position). A new senior director of diversity (final title TBD) in Human Resources is also planned. These two additional officers will work in concert with the new vice chancellor on institution-wide IE transformation, building on the ongoing Imagine DU initiatives.
