Representation Matters: List of Faculty and Staff of Color at KU

We are creating a public list of faculty and staff of color who wish to act as a resource for the community. Each name will be shown on the Multicultural Center website. The list is intended to increase awareness and fellowship among our communities of color at KU in an effort to increase advocacy for diversity, equity and inclusion on campus. We hope this can serve as a valuable resource to highlight our vibrant KU communities of color and assist students, faculty and staff with a sense of belonging. Please fill out the form below if you are interested in having your information included on our Multicultural Center page. We are hopeful that it will encourage great conversations and opportunities for networking.
