Meet the Interim Associate Vice President

Jane Irungu Ph.D.

Jane Irungu, Ph.D.

As Interim Associate Vice President of the Office of University Community, I oversee all diversity initiatives within the University of Oklahoma, ensuring that all three of OU's campuses are committed to, and are maintaining diverse and inclusive communities.

We hold that a diverse and inclusive community is a necessary condition for excellence in all endeavors at the University of Oklahoma.

The Office of University Community works closely with faculty, staff, and students to ensure that all areas of campus life are embraced in our common goal of inclusive excellence.  Our work will be guided by three major goals:


  • Faculty and Staff Recruitment, Retention and Development 
  • Student Recruitment, Retention, Engagement and Experience
  • Campus Climate  

I am very excited about taking on this new role, and I look forward to working with different stakeholders to enhance our ideals of diversity, equity and inclusion.
