Moving beyond the Emergence of the CDO
Stevenson, Michael R.
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v7 n2 p109-111 Jun 2014
Herein, M. R. Stevenson comments on R. A. Leon's "Journal of Diversity in Higher Education" article ("The Chief Diversity Officer: An Examination of CDO Models and Strategies") that focuses on the role of the chief diversity officer (CDO) in higher education. Stevenson suggests that the article is a groundbreaking publication, representing a milestone in what he hopes will become a vigorous and rich conversation about the value a successful CDO can bring to a college or university. Stevenson raises what he believes to be important questions relevant to this research that arise out of his own experience as a leader of diversity-related initiatives and are informed by his service in various leadership roles.
