The President’s Council on Diversity Equity and Inclusion at St. Mary’s University

In June 2020, President Tom Mengler announced the formation of a President’s Council on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) to advance St. Mary’s University’s efforts to become and stand firmly as an anti-racist university.

Professor of Law André Hampton, J.D., agreed to serve as chair of the Council and Sheri King, Ph.D., Director of Student Life, as vice chair. Hampton and King are leading the Council in dialogue on the issue of racial justice in our community and our responsibilities, as an essential element of the St. Mary’s mission, to act for the common good.

The Council is charged with making specific recommendations for initiatives that could be acted upon by our community as early as this semester and would enhance the University’s dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion. This committee is charged with focusing the University’s work on topics including, but not limited to, implicit bias awareness, hiring, curriculum and co-curricular programming, faculty and staff training and development programming, community engagement and campus communications and marketing.
