Heller School Dean Lisa Lynch announced this month the founding of the Heller Diversity Steering Committee. Its main objectives are the enhancement of educational and research programs; reinforcement of an inclusive and welcoming environment; and the diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity and socioeconomics among the Heller School’s faculty, university staff and students.

The committee will be chaired by Anita Hill, a Heller School professor and household name, who has recently taken on several leadership roles on campus, which she joined in 1997.

“The committee’s work is in keeping with the Heller mission to address issues facing a diverse society with attention to its most vulnerable citizens and will enhance the Heller School’s ability to expand its current research activities on disparities in access to health care, economic well-being, education, social services and human rights,” Lynch said.
