Welcome Message from the Vice President for Equity and Inclusion
Welcome to East Tennessee State University's Office of Equity and Inclusion. One of our premier missions is to build awareness of equity and inclusion institution wide, thereby affirming the educational value of a diverse and fully inclusive campus community. We aspire to become a campus enriched by persons of different backgrounds, points of view, cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and other diverse characteristics by infusing inclusion into all aspects of university life.
We are an ever-evolving university entity as we process change, development, and transformation, not only within the realm of the department, but throughout the campus community. Already, we have experienced success in our endeavors as the Equity and Inclusion Plan for our institution unfolds. We extend a warm “thank you” to a willing, high-performing faculty, staff and administration as we move forward toward an inviting climate of inclusion that will be woven into the fabric of the university.

Vice President for Equity and Inclusion
