Position Summary

The Center for Equity & Student Achievement ( CESA ) is the MSU Denver area in Student Affairs explicitly focused on students’ sense of belonging and engagement with a lens of equity and understanding of how their social identities contribute to their university experience and career pathways. CESA provides student support with an emphasis on addressing inequities experienced by students and houses several centers and programs aimed at increasing college retention, persistence, and graduation rates of historically underrepresented student populations.

Under the supervision of the Associate Dean for Equity and Student Engagement, this position will work with the Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion ( CMEI ), the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, and campus and community partners to design and deliver programming, initiatives, services, and opportunities to support and create conditions that empower underrepresented BIPOC student populations at MSU Denver with particular attention to the experience of Native and Indigenous Students.

Metropolitan State University of Denver is a unique, access-oriented campus community that values diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its forms. We are a designated Hispanic Serving Institution located in downtown Denver. Our student population consists of over 50% first generation students and over 45% students of color.

Within the Division of Student Affairs, we strive to create an equitable learning and working environment in concert with individuals who consistently demonstrate commitment to equity and inclusion. We value the diverse identities and perspectives of our students, faculty, and staff and recognize that in order to achieve a just and equitable society, diversity must go beyond simple representation. Rather, it requires critical inquiry and dialogue and a commitment to action. We strive to provide a foundation for all community members to achieve personal and professional success.
