For my last blog this academic year, I thought it beneficial to engage in a reflection with PSU’s President Wim Wiewel for his last year at PSU.
Wim Wiewel has served as PSU’s president since 2008, guiding the university through a dramatic period of growth, accomplishments, and increased independence. In this Vlog, I ask Wiewel questions about PSU’s successes, what we could have done differently, and future directions.
There is a lot to celebrate when it comes to diversity at PSU – President’s Diversity Awards Celebration, Diversity Action Plan, Equal Access Scholarship and more.
To start, finalists for our Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) will begin campus visits next week. The CDO directs our Office of Global Diversity and Inclusion (GDI) and provides leadership for diversity, inclusion and cultural competency actions and initiatives. PSU launched our CDO search a few months ago to fill the position vacated in September 2014 by Jilma Meneses. Chas Lopez is currently serving as the interim CDO of GDI.
