How I Built a Diverse Leadership Team at a Predominantly White College

September 08, 2020

Shirley M. Collado, President, Ithaca College writes: Stepping into this role, I was intentional about building a diverse senior-leadership team, with the understanding that not only are students tired of attending institutions that do not affirm who they are — they are also exhausted from navigating systems that do not understand or support them. We must make a real commitment to equity and to better serving students from all walks of life.

Return to College MUST Work

David L. Johns, president of Ferrum College (VA), writes: As students move back to college this month, the usual excitement and bittersweet goodbyes are being seasoned with apprehension and whispered prayers. None of us are naive.
