Amid furloughs, UW-Oshkosh seeks diversity officer

Empower Wisconsin | April 28, 2020

MADISON — Wisconsin’s unemployment rate may have hit historic highs, but diversity hiring goes on. 

The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh is interviewing candidates for associate vice chancellor for Inclusive Excellence & Chief Diversity officer.  The position pays as much as $129,500 a year, according to a job posting. 

UW-Oshkosh was the first in the University of Wisconsin System school to announce plans to furlough employees, as the COVID-19 outbreak has shut down on-campus learning for students everywhere. Still, the university is fixed on filling the open diversity officer position. 

“The successful candidate will have a proven record of leading equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts resulting in transformational change across a University setting. UW Oshkosh values diversity as a key to innovation, creativity, and progress,” the job description states. “The AVC for IE and CDO will develop and implement equitable and inclusive strategies to advance UW Oshkosh’s commitment to inclusive excellence as outlined in its mission and strategic plan.”

Meanwhile, the LGBTQ+ agenda at Oshkosh rolls on. 

Last week, Romeo Jackson, LGBTQ & Gender Program Coordinator at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas was keynote speaker for Transition Week at UW-Oshkosh’s Reeve Union. The online discussion focused on how, particularly, faculty and staff “can collaborate with queer and trans students of Color to create space that affirms, celebrates, and centers queer and trans students of Color.” Another topic dealt with “intersectional Coalition Building within “justice movements.” 

Such are the discussions the new vice chancellor for Inclusive Excellence will work to promote on the UW-Oshkosh campus.
