DEI Email Informs the College Community of Changes

By Ella Prieto, Managing/News Editor 

On Wednesday afternoon, Chief Diversity Officer Eloísa Gordon-Mora sent an email to the Gettysburg College community reflecting on her first year in the role. 

“After having completed my first year as Chief Diversity Officer (CDO), I wanted to share some of the collaborative work that has been advanced on different DEI fronts, as well as some of our goals moving forward,” stated Gordon-Mora.

Some of the collaborative work that was accomplished included creating a team of students, faculty, administrators and support staff that revised the Bias Response and Education Protocol, a revised Name Policy that was released in May, the formation of a new Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Advisory Committee and updates to the Diversity & Inclusion website.

Gordon-Mora then transitioned to the work they are beginning this year: creating the College’s first Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan. The yearlong project will involve all divisions, departments and units of the College, as well as the Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning through an HHMI grant.

She shared that the plan will “…center on inclusive excellence as a method and practice to be advanced in the classroom, as well as in the workplace.”

The email concluded by sharing support for Morocco after the devastating earthquake and the assurance that anyone can contact Gordon-More with questions or needs.
