Spring 2009 -- Volume 1 Issue 1 [ Return to Table of Contents ]
Welcome from Vice President Edwin C. Marshall
Welcome to the debut issue of Diversity Works, a newsletter that will share with you how diversity works at Indiana University. When I became vice president for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs in 2007, my overarching priority was to support the continued development of racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity throughout the university. Through collaboration and cooperation across units and campuses, we are seeing the positive results of our efforts.
In January, I was honored to join President McRobbie and Board of Trustees President Steve Ferguson in witnessing the Inauguration of our nation's 44th president. You can read my personal reflections on this unforgettable moment in our nation's history in our News section. No matter what our differences may be, we have a precious opportunity to come together in a shared purpose. As we face difficult challenges to our economy and security, we must realize that we can prevail by deepening our commitment to diversity and equity. Let us continue striving together to envision a better world, believe in its possibility, and achieve its attainment. The journey ahead demands no less.
Edwin C. Marshall
