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 may eventually report.

In March, she and the Provost announced a new position, the Senior 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.
