Interim Plan for the Office of Diversity & Inclusion
Dear Members of the Graduate Community,
As you know, Nsombi B. Ricketts moved from her role as Assistant Dean of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion in TGS to become Assistant Provost for Diversity and Inclusion in the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion at Northwestern. We are currently searching for the next leader for the Office of Diversity & Inclusion in TGS with input from faculty, students, and staff from the graduate community, and I want to assure you that business continues as usual in TGS.
Jennifer E. Hobbs, PhD, Assistant Dean for Graduate and Postdoctoral Training and Development, is currently overseeing our Office of Diversity and Inclusion in an interim role. We are fortunate to have her in place to continue our efforts in fostering a diverse and inclusive TGS community, as this work is critical to our strategic priorities. Please connect as you would normally with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion team: Noelle Wakefield, PhD, Aireale Joi Rodgers, and Krystal Villanosa.
I will be in contact with an update once we have appointed a new leader of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion in TGS.
With Warm Regards,
Dwight A. McBride, PhD
Associate Provost & Dean of The Graduate School
