Summer/Fall 2009 -- Volume 1 Issue 2 [ Return to Table of Contents ]
Welcome from Vice President Edwin C. Marshall
As we start a new semester at Indiana University, it is important that each of us think about how we can individually and collectively contribute to the excellence of our university through the promotion of a welcoming and inclusive environment where diversity is expected and valued. In this edition of our newsletter, we discuss some of the activities and programs that the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs (DEMA) supports in its mission of diversity and inclusion.
As our state and the nation face challenging times, DEMA's mission is more important than ever. However, our mission must also be your mission. You must be as vested in the process as we are to help maintain and foster the excellence that is Indiana University. So, whether this is a welcome back or a first time welcome, the DEMA family looks forward to engaging you in making this a most successful year of academic excellence through diversity and inclusion.
Edwin C. Marshall, O.D., M.S., M.P.H.
