Message from the Chief Diversity Officer
Carolyn Denard


On behalf of the Office of Inclusive Excellence, I would like to welcome back the entire University community for the new academic year.  It has been a challenging six months for the University and the nation, and we want you all to know that we are committed to helping members of the Georgia College community get through this unusual time with resources, programs, workshops, and other virtual gatherings that will help us sustain our commitment to each other and to our ongoing goal of creating an inclusive community.  

The highlight of our work this year will be leading the development of the New Diversity Action Plan.  In September, we will begin a series of discussion sessions to help us begin to assess where we are and to develop the blueprint for how we will move forward to build on the work of the last Diversity Action Plan and meet the new and continuing challenges we face now and the future. We invite you to take part in as many of the discussions as possible in order to make sure that your voice and your ideas are heard as we engage in this important work. 

Whether you are working or studying remotely or in person, we wish you a safe and successful semester.
