OIDEO Releases Annual Diversity Report

Case Western Reserve University diversity achievements and programs are highlighted in the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity’s 2014 Annual Diversity Report.  The report spotlights student activism on campus, the success of the university’s Sustained Dialogue program and campus community resource groups and corporate partners who support campus diversity efforts.

“This report demonstrates that CWRU’s commitment to creating a campus culture of inclusion is stronger than ever,” states Vice President for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity Marilyn S. Mobley in her column included in the report.

The report was released January 23 at the conclusion of the university’s MLK Convocation, which featured award-winning journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault as the guest speaker.  The report also highlights programs and diversity successes of CWRU’s schools and departments, including increased enrollment of underrepresented students in the School of Engineering, Weatherhead School of Management’s leadership program for women in the sciences and the continuation of a campus mentoring program for East Cleveland youth.

FACULTY DIVERSITY


The Office of Faculty Diversity provides support to Faculty, Departments and Schools, around issues of faculty recruitment, retention and diversity and inclusion training.

 

The Faculty Diversity Officer reviews allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination (gender, sexual orientation, racial, ADA) and also serves as a facilitator for addressing faculty diversity issues in areas related to faculty duties.

 

DIVERSITY PROGRAMMING

Diversity Awareness Training

We provide diversity awareness workshops and consultation services for students, faculty, and staff. In some cases, we develop a program specific to goals, participants, and time frame in order to accommodate the different classes, departments, offices, and student groups that request training.

Some sessions may be conducted jointly with other offices on campus.

Train the Champion

Train the Champion aims to foster an environment that embraces diversity; assist with retention and recruitment of faculty, staff and students; encourage overall workplace satisfaction; and foster a sustained dialogue on diversity, with specific focus on issues in higher education and at Case Western Reserve. The eight-month program consists of monthly sessions and additional brown bag lunches to facilitate further, less formal discussions.

 

 

Power of Diversity Lecture Series

The annual series is designed to inspire campus dialogue, community engagement and civic education and learning about the national narrative on diversity and inclusion. All events are free and open to the public.
