Leading for Change Diversity Consortium: Racial Equity & Justice Institute

In conjunction with the efforts of Bridgewater State University and other area universities and colleges, Suffolk is part of the Leading for Change Diversity Consortium. The consortium is designed to provide solutions for decreasing the achievement and opportunity gap for marginalized groups in higher education.

During the 2018-2019 academic year, Leading for Change is focusing on Racial Equity and Justice as a means to develop institutional practices that lead to optimal inclusion for faculty, staff, and students. The Leading for Change website contains metrics that use benchmark data to track our current progress on diversity and inclusion. Our current campus team comprises the following members: Jennifer Blakely, Cam Breither, Alina Choo, Heather Dwyer, Gary Fireman, Robin Mangino, Bea Patino, Joyya Smith, Natasha Torkelson, and Cherina Wright.
