OIDEO Releases 2012 Annual Diversity Report
Case Western Reserve University diversity highlights and accomplishments are featured in Building Inclusive Excellence, 2012 Annual Diversity Report from the Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity. The report, released in January, includes articles on recent diversity awards the university has received, the success of the School of Engineering Strategic Hiring Initiative, the Emerging Scholars Program for students and a leadership development program for women.
In addition, the report highlights the current scholarship fund drive sponsored by the African American Alumni Association and the establishment of the university's Diversity Champion Annual Fund, which was created to support diversity initiatives and programs. The report also summarizes diversity highlights related to faculty, students and staff in the past year. The annual report is available online or copies can be picked up from the Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity, Adelbert Hall, Suite 315.
CWRU Receives National Diversity Award
Case Western Reserve University is the recipient of the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award presented by Insight Into Diversity magazine, a national publication that focuses on diversity in higher education. The award, announced in mid-November, recognizes U. S. colleges and universities that demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. This is the first year that such an award has been given by Insight Into Diversity.
CWRU is one of 47 higher education institutions to be recognized by the magazine. In selecting CWRU for the award, sponsors specifically highlighted the Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity's Train the Champion program. In a statement about the award to CWRU, Lenore Pearlstein, editor of the magazine, said that while many colleges and universities excel at student diversity initiatives, CWRU stands out as an institution that approaches diversity in a holistic manner, including all members of the campus community.

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.
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.
The Office of Faculty Diversity (OFD) is housed within Case Western Reserve's Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity. 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.
