Institutional Diversity Update

Zachary Ritter joins OID as our new assistant dean. He most recently worked at the University of Redlands as the associate director of campus diversity and inclusion before joining Mudd. Zack completed his PhD in higher education at UCLA.

Last month, the Nelson Speaker Series started off with a bang with nearly 180 students attending Melina Abdullah’s talk. Attendance at OID events has been at record levels this year with approximately 80 students attending Detoxing Masculinity and nearly 70 students attending Identity Intersections with Liz Orwin. Additionally, our newest initiative, the Social Justice League (SJL), is off to a great start with 4 student coordinators in training and more than 20 applicants for membership.
