SUNY New Paltz is pleased to announce the 2020-21 class of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Faculty Fellows, the result of a faculty-initiated program designed to support faculty developing learning opportunities for students around social justice, inequality and related topics.
This list of Fellows, first shared in Interim Provost Barbara Lyman’s November 2020 Report to the Faculty, will integrate new diversity, equity and inclusion content into courses and programs, and will meet regularly to discuss materials and pedagogy.
Please join us in congratulating the inaugural class of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Faculty Fellows:

These faculty members were selected from a pool of applicants by the Diversity Committee, a branch of the Curriculum Committee of the Faculty Senate.
The Fellowship was initially proposed and the selection process launched by Associate Professor Michelle Woods and Associate Professor Sarah Wyman.
