Katie Oglesby, Editor-in-Chief

On Tuesday, President Bob Iuliano sent out a campus-wide email announcing that Dr. Eloísa Gordon-Mora will serve as the new Chief Diversity officer for Gettysburg College beginning Aug. 8.

This announcement comes after a search that launched in the beginning of the spring 2022 semester.

Gordon-Mora will serve on the President’s Council and work on the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) priorities of the College, Iuliano said.

Diverse: Issues in Higher Education recognized Gordon-Mora as one of “35 Outstanding Women in Higher Education.” Currently, she is the Diversity and Inclusion Officer at University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). Iuliano explained that in this role, she was responsible for creating and implementing the university’s first DEI Strategic Action Plan that had measurable success in making the university more inclusive for its student body, faculty, and staff.

“Throughout her distinguished tenure at UNR, Dr. Gordon-Mora has partnered with the university and surrounding community to organize and champion advocacy efforts,” he said.

She also serves as one of two higher education representatives from Nevada on the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities’ Equity Council and previously served as the chair for the Nevada System of Higher Education’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility Council.

Before working at UNR, Gordon-Mora was the Dean of the School of Social Science, Humanities, and Communication at Universidad Ana G. Méndez and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Prior to that, she served in numerous other higher education roles in New York City.

She has a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Notre Dame.

 Iuliano thanked Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students Anne Ehrlich, the executive search firm WittKieffer, and the search advisory committee for their assistance in this process. 

 “Please join me in congratulating Dr. Gordon-Mora on her new position and welcoming her to the Gettysburg College community!” he said.
