College Launches New Diversity Awareness Campaign

A diversity awareness initiative, “Shine the Light on Oz,” is the latest in a series of projects nurtured over the past year by the college’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. The campaign encourages meaningful conversation—in person and on social media—among students, faculty and staff about understanding differences in realms such as race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion and socioeconomic circumstances.

Jerald Woolfolk, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management, launched a campus-wide task force last April to improve the college community atmosphere and to educate the campus about issues of diversity. College President Deborah F. Stanley recently named Woolfolk the college’s interim diversity and inclusion officer.
