Presidential Commission on Race and Diversity to Examine Campus Climate

University of Rochester logoA new University commission will assess issues of race and diversity at the University and recommend ways to improve the racial climate at Rochester. Established by President and CEO Joel Seligman in a message to the community after 150 students held a November protest to demand improvements in campus diversity and a stronger stance against racism, the commission will issue a preliminary report in January and a final report by the end of the spring semester.
 
The commission will include Warner School Professor Nancy Ares as well as other administrators and staff, faculty, and students across campus.
