University of Missouri Diversity Chief Returns to Law School

University of Missouri School of Law

An interim diversity officer at the University of Missouri will be returning to the university's School of Law in the fall.

Chuck Henson was named interim Vice Chancellor for Inclusion, Diversity and Equity following student protests last November. Interim Chancellor Hank Foley announced Friday that Henson will return to the law school, where he was an associate dean before he was named to the diversity job.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Foley's announcement did not say how the university plans to fill the diversity position.

Since November, Henson created a Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity, developed a diversity orientation program for new students and implemented diversity training for officers who make hiring decisions. Henson also created "The Working Group" to discuss campus diversity issues.
