Diversity chief to help lead national forum on race


Lee A. Gill

Lee A. Gill, associate vice president of inclusion and equity and chief diversity officer, has been appointed co-chair of the program committee for the National Conference for Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education. He will begin his tenure at the NCORE National Conference in June in New York City.

The NCORE conference series, begun in 1988 by The Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies at Oklahoma University, constitutes the leading and most comprehensive national forum on issues of race and ethnicity in American higher education. The conference focuses on the complex task of creating and sustaining comprehensive institutional change designed to improve racial and ethnic relations on campus and to expand opportunities for educational access and success by culturally diverse, traditionally underrepresented populations.

Gill also is president of the Ohio Chief Diversity Officers Collaboration and has served on the National Advisory Board of NCORE since 2010.
