The University of Cincinnati has moved one step closer to finding a new chief diversity officer.
Louis Bilionis, chair of the search committee and dean of the College of Law, announced the search was narrowed to four candidates. Out of the four, only one — current interim chief diversity officer Bluezette Marshall — currently works at UC.
The other candidates are Sabrina Gentlewarrior of Bridgewater State University, Cheryl Nunez of Xavier University and Keith Borders formerly of Luxottica Retail.
According to the position description, the chief diversity officer will provide strategic, integrated program direction and consultation to colleges, units and departments; develop and manage an annual budget for diversity efforts; partner with the provost, deans and associate provost for diversity and inclusion and the chief human resources officer to improve the recruitment and retention of a diverse faculty and staff.
