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.
The annual diversity report is available online. Printed copies of the report are available in the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity, Adelbert Hall, Suite 315.
