MU is welcoming a fresh but familiar face to the role of Chief Diversity Officer.
Deputy Chancellor Mike Middleton appointed Noor Azizan-Gardner to coordinate the Chancellor’s Diversity Initiative (CDI) as Chief Diversity Officer. Duties of this position include efforts in increasing diversity of students, staff and faculty, as well as maintaining a convivial campus community.
Chief Diversity Officer Noor Azizan-Gardner said she is excited to get everyone working together so the board can begin making dramatic but positive changes.
The Chancellor’s Diversity Initiative at MU will be conducting new research to improve the climate for diversity on campus. This new phase of the study will use an online survey to reach all members of the community. Project director Roger Worthington says this year’s study differs from past version.
