As the awareness of disparities in access, opportunities, equity, and outcomes are more evident than ever, higher education institutions are increasingly focused on diversity and inclusion efforts. Students are concerned about and committed to being a part of diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus communities. But, the conversation doesn’t stop with the student experience – faculty and staff also want to work in an environment where they feel they belong. 

Auburn University’s Presidential Task Force for Opportunity and Equity has been leading the movement for action on these issues by addressing disparities in recruitment and retention as well as implementing a campus-wide training program. Dr. Taffye Clayton, VP and Associate Provost of DEI, will take us behind the scenes of this impactful project.

  • How the events of 2020 escalated the rate of change for the field of diversity and inclusion on college campuses
