Dr. Dyson shares the following to accompany this exciting news:
“I am grateful yet geeked to share that I’ve been added as a member to the Diversity Scholars Network, a program out of the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan.
I am looking forward to participating in their professional development programs, networking, and receiving mentorship as I hone in on my leadership and administrative skills, with a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
Through the network, my project specifically will be focused on enhancing key knowledge and skills that will be critical in advancing academic spaces for students, especially those with marginalized identities, to feel safe, supported, and comfortable, to show up as their authentic selves while successfully getting what they came for: their degrees.
I am also looking forward to connecting and engaging with the other Diversity Scholars in our efforts to advance social transformation.
