Regents’ Professor and Distinguished Sustainability Scientist Rebecca Tsosie is appointed vice provost for Inclusion and Community Engagement. Her expertise will help the university continue to grow in the areas of diversity, inclusion, new knowledge systems and community-building.
In her new role, Tsosie will help the Arizona State University community further understand and learn how to address complex issues associated with race, gender, ethnicity, religion and other forms of diversity. She will offer guidance to university administrators and work in collaboration with campus organizations, such as the Committee for Campus Inclusion and the Faculty Women’s Association, in order to operationalize ASU’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
It is her hope to develop a transformative model of inclusion and community engagement that will set an important standard for leadership in higher education.
