    Welcome to the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    Emily MonagoWelcome to the Office of the Chief Diversity Officer for Diversity and Inclusion. This office was made possible due to the vision, commitment, and hard work of President Laurie Nichols, the support of the Board of Trustees, and members of the University of Wyoming campus community both past and present. The doors to this office opened on July 17, 2017. I am honored to serve as the inaugural Chief Diversity Officer.  Other members of the office team are a Diversity Analyst: Mrs. Christi Carter and an administrative assistant: Ms. Kaila Mills.

    The immediate priority is to develop an initial strategic plan for this office. This process will begin by listening and learning from you on the existing diversity and inclusion efforts and priorities of the campus community. This information will then be utilized to create the foundation for establishing new goals and priories that build on the rich history and culture of the University of Wyoming campus community. You are readily invited to visit our Web site for future updates. I am looking forward to meeting you and working with students, faculty, staff and community members!

    Message from the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion June 24, 2021 5:10 p.m.

    The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion recently learned about the racist, threatening and hateful messages received by the Black Studies Center Facebook page today. We strongly denounce such vile racist behaviors and affirm that these behaviors do not align with the values and mission of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We stand in solidarity with the Black Studies Center and all that they do to advance inclusivity at the University of Wyoming on campus and in the community.
