Advancing Diversity & Inclusive Excellence

Welcome to CME's digital home!

We invite you to use the resources on this site to learn more about our work, and how we can help your understanding and action for the University's commitment to Inclusive Excellence.

Thank you to all who joined us at events during CME Celebration Week , May 4-8th! The work is done by and for more than those directly connected to CME, and it was wonderful to re/connect with so many friends, colleagues and allies. Check out, or share, pictures from the events: #CMEcelebration

UPDATED! Chancellor's announced administrative changes

On December 4, 2015, 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, to whom we may eventually report. On May 26th, Dr Liliana Rodriguez was announced as this new VC, joining our community from July 1.

In March 2015, she and the Provost announced a new position, the Sr Associate Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Excellence and Senior Advisor to the Chancellor for Diversity and External Relations  A new Diversity Recruitment and Retention Leader in Human Resources also has been posted. 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.
