A Mosaic of Faculty Diversity at Gettysburg College


In the fall of 2010, President Riggs announced the formation of a newly structured Diversity Commission.  The Commission is charged with making recommendations to the President and advancing initiatives focused specifically on

  1. the recruitment and retention of a more diverse faculty and staff
  2. the further development of a climate that welcomes, supports, and truly delights in diversity, and that also confronts on a regular basis the related social justice issues.
