Candidate Open Forum for VP for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The University of Utah invites nominations and applications for the inaugural position of Vice President for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (VPEDI). The VPEDI will provide senior administrative leadership for strategic planning and implementation of mission-driven institutional diversity efforts at the University of Utah. This position will be part of a team-leading diversity, equity and inclusion efforts across campus including all University of Utah stakeholders.
As the “University for Utah,” the University of Utah fosters student success by preparing students from diverse backgrounds for lives of an impact as leaders and citizens. Reporting to President Ruth V. Watkins, the VPEDI will foster the President’s vision of “One University” by leading and overseeing the Office for Equity & Diversity. The work of the Office for Equity & Diversity is far-reaching, encompasses the academic and health sciences campuses and supports a wide range of social identities (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation), focal groups (e.g., students, faculty and staff), and core areas applicable across focal groups and social identities (e.g., recruitment and retention, campus climate, curriculum and instruction).
