Diversity Liaisons

Inclusion starts with a welcoming environment especially for members of historically marginalized or underrepresented communities. To nurture such an environment, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion collaborates with colleges, administrative areas and non-academic departments to develop and implement strategic initiatives carried out by diversity liaisons. By liaising between DEI and their unit, the liaisons ensure that strategies are carried out according to their initial intent.  The list below reports the liaisons in the OU-Tulsa Campus.
