The CDEBO is an exciting opportunity for an accomplished, and innovative leader with proven effectiveness and expertise in achieving institutional excellence in diversity, equity, and belonging efforts as well as the ability to lead with vision, purposefulness, and optimism in helping shape PSCOM's future.  The successful candidate will be a thought leader in the field and have a proven record of accomplishment.  Candidates must have a minimum of five years of relevant experience in a senior leader diversity role; prior experience in higher education is preferred but not required.
