Message from the President

The ethnic diversity of our faculty, staff and students does not match the state or the region of the state in which we are located. This should leave each of us with a level of dissatisfaction.

While I could provide you with data to prove this point, I don’t think any of you need to see data to believe what I am saying. And rather than focus on the data, at this point, I would much rather us focus on our attention on our heart and our actions.

We pride ourselves in our liberal arts mission, as the university with a broad curriculum and broad experiences to prepare students to face the wide opportunities which lay before them in the future, yet our lack of diversity does not suit us well to do this very thing. Colleagues, we cannot be the kind of university we desire to be without giving some thought and action to our diversity as a learning institution. We cannot adequately prepare students for the multicultural and multiethnic world they face unless we, too, fully embrace this world ourselves.

While we desire to be an institution that has greater diversity among faculty and students, we clearly have some internal work to do. It will be also important for us to lead and fully engage our community on this issue. Finally, it will be important to put into place a plan, a structure and a process to recruit diverse faculty and students.

 

Georgia College President, Dr. Steve Dorman, excerpt from the State of the University address January, 2013.
