Chief Diversity Officers and the Wonderful World of Academe
Harvey, William B.
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v7 n2 p92-100 Jun 2014
The chief diversity officer (CDO) position is new in the realm of higher education administration. Charged with helping their institutions become more diverse and inclusive, the people who occupy these positions face a variety of challenges as they attempt to modify change-resistant institutional cultures. Still, the emergence of the CDO position as a useful, even important, administrative appointment provides an opportunity to broaden representation in the academy among the student bodies, faculty, and administration, and perhaps even within the curriculum.
