Getting It Done: Rising to Opportunities and Challenges in Diversity and Inclusion in Higher Education
Advancing diversity and inclusion in higher education requires more than institutional will to engage in the work. It requires strategic visioning and leadership that is transformative and positions our institutions "to compete and win in the global marketplace" (Williams, 2013). The issues confronting 21st century higher education are as complex and diverse as the communities represented on our campuses, whether they are two- or four-year institutions; public, private, liberal arts, research intensive, Historically Black Colleges and Universities; Hispanic Serving Institutions or Tribal Colleges. The responsibility for Getting It Done requires leadership that understands the complexities of today's diverse learning and work environments; understands the changing legal and regulatory landscape; respects and supports the efforts of those charged with leading diversity and inclusion initiatives within institutions; and builds capacity within institutions to rise to opportunities and challenges in diversity and inclusion. CDOs and diversity and inclusion leaders in higher education play a critical role in creating and supporting systems that enable diverse communities to not only survive, but thrive.
