More than 19 senior diversity officers from universities around the country convened on the Loyola Marymount University campus Sunday, July 26, 2009, for the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education’s annual board meeting.
“The board members specifically sought out LMU because of the university’s great reputation for its diversity initiatives, and the strong support we receive from the president and the provost,” said Abbie Robinson-Armstrong, vice president for intercultural affairs.
In keeping with the university’s mission, the Office of Intercultural Affairs established five initiatives to promote throughout the campus: inclusive excellence; inclusive work and learning environment; inclusive curriculum; educational equity and accountability; and advocacy and support.
State Sen. Gloria Romero, 24th District, delivered a California Certificate of Recognition to NADOHE in honor of the meeting, which will end Tuesday, July 28. The certificate reads “In honor of your dedication and commitment to increasing access and equity in higher education. We commend you for your steadfast pursuit of expanding educational opportunities for all students. Best wishes for continued success.”
