Welcome Letter from Dr. Malika Carter, Ph.D, Chief Diversity Officer

The Office of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity has shared responsibility for coordination of all aspects of our Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity commitment, and regulatory compliance obligations. This includes working collaboratively with other campus partners as part of our mission. To achieve remarkable results, and to achieve our mission, an inclusive organization must be created and sustained. We're committed to an environment that is civil, respectful, fair, accessible, safe, and nurturing. We invite you to join us in creating that inclusive community and engage in a dialogue directly with my office, publicly or privately. Our office is located in Suite 445 in Baker Laboratory. Best of wishes to you in continued success here at ESF.
