WSU has taken an important step forward this year by building awareness of what it means to become an inclusive community. Every Winona State student should feel welcomed and supported and have full access to the excellence we offer. The Diversity Task Force hosted our first all-university Diversity Summit, at which more than 200 participants considered our student, employee and alumni experiences. The task force also created an online center to provide up-to-date information on our progress. I am especially pleased to note that student groups self-organized to establish KEAP (Knowledge, Empowerment, Advocacy and Pluralism), a new inclusive student center. I’ve just received a set of task force recommendations for actions to implement next year. Achieving greater diversity at WSU is a long-term proposition, but we are most definitely on our way.
