Background: Diversity, equity and inclusion have always been part of Duquesne University. Duquesne's Catholic Spiritan founders have always believed in welcoming all and excluding none. The University's founding in 1878 took place because recent immigrants and their families, working in the steel mills and factories, were being systematically denied opportunity in Pittsburgh's growing economic and societal network. Today, Duquesne continues to have a strong commitment to DEI. It is seen every day in our community's nearly 9,000 students representing 48 states, 75 countries and a broad range of diverse backgrounds and experiences. DEI is essential to advancing the University's mission. Since 2017, under the leadership of President Ken Gormley, Duquesne has shown a greater and more visible level of commitment to DEI efforts. In 2018, the University launched its five-year strategic plan with DEI as a key imperative of that plan. As noted in the plan, "[a]s Duquesne has become more complex and has drawn people from around the nation and the world, the strategic plan necessitates that the University commit to vibrancy and a climate to foster achievement." Since then, the University has taken many important actions to boost its commitment to DEI including the formation of the President's Advisory Council for Diversity and Inclusion. At President Ken Gormley's request in Fall 2020, the University began engaging in a comprehensive process with the goal of creating a more diverse, inclusive and equitable campus community which has already resulted in tangible outcomes such as a framework for a DEI Action Planning process, the creation of a bias and education response team, and new space for the University's student-facing Office of Diversity and Inclusion. The Position and a Summary of Duties: The Chief Diversity Officer and Senior Advisor to the President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (the "CDO") will be a member of the President's cabinet and a visible, accessible, knowledgeable, and trusted diversity, equity and inclusion ("DEI") leader. The CDO will champion the importance and value of a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment and lead the development of effective strategies to create, support and advance a culture of respect where all
