After an internal search, CSU has chosen four candidates for its new vice president for Diversity position. The position was added to the budget for fiscal year 2011 after the retirement of Dana Hiatt, who then directed the universityâ€™s Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity.
Whoever is chosen for the new position will work half-time coordinating the universityâ€™s diversity efforts and communicating with campus advocacy offices. After three years, the administration will review whether the position should become full-time.
â€œWe feel this is an excellent group of candidates and are pleased with the progress of the search,â€ said Vice President of Student Affairs Blanche Hughes, who led the search committee, in a press release.
All candidates were chosen from within the CSU community, and CSU President Tony Frank is supposed to choose one before June. The interviews are open to the public.
