Isenberg is fortunate to be located in Western Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley, an area known for its rich history of inclusion, social and environmental responsibility, and grassroots activism. We are proud to build on that tradition by creating an environment where students, faculty, and staff learn from each other’s diverse perspectives and experiences and treat one another with respect. Our goal is to continually improve and support a climate where each community member feels comfortable bringing their authentic self to work, sharing ideas, and inspiring one another every day.
At Isenberg, we know that a diverse student body enhances learning for everyone, and that the exchange of ideas among students and faculty with different backgrounds sparks creativity, problem-solving, and innovation. We also know that as our communities and workplaces become increasingly international, we need to develop leaders who understand and value different viewpoints and experiences, who have the cultural competency to guide diverse teams, and who are equipped to thrive in a global marketplace.
Whether in the classroom or in our student clubs and organizations, through mentoring, conferences, seminars, and in myriad other ways, we are committed to your success at Isenberg. I look forward to working in my new role, Associate Dean for an Inclusive Organization, beginning in January of 2019 and growing our team to support Isenberg's, and the University's, goals toward a more inclusive organization.
