The Vice Chancellor will promote dialogue and action about complex issues involved in creating and maintaining an equitable and diverse campus. Inform and support the Chancellor, Senior Staff, student, and faculty and staff leaders to vision, plan, and implement university-level approaches to addressing equal opportunity and non-discrimination issues with a commitment to cultural responsiveness. The Vice Chancellor will provide senior leadership for the Office of Institutional Equity.
