A message from Senior Vice President for Student Affairs and Diversity and Chief Diversity Officer Glenn McIntosh

I am thrilled to share some truly exciting organizational changes within the Division of Student Affairs & Diversity. These changes reflect our unwavering commitment to cultivating an inclusive and supportive campus environment where every member can thrive.

MartinezRecognizing the ever-growing significance of Title IX, it was decided to re-align Chad Martinez's role so he now serves as the University’s Title IX and Compliance Director. Chad will devote his full attention to overseeing all university Title IX cases and those related to equal employment opportunity, as well as spearheading impactful campus-wide initiatives aimed at raising awareness and implementing educational programs and services attendant to this role. He will continue to address employee ADA requests and facilitate the Diversity and Equity Advocate process for new searches as they support our efforts at providing opportunities for the underserved and underrepresented populations.

CazaresFurthermore, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Aura Cazares has assumed the new title of Assistant Dean of Students & Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. In this role, Aura will continue to handle student conduct incidents and provide leadership in coordinating a strategic approach to programs and services targeting faculty, staff and students on our diversity, equity, and inclusion matters.

These significant changes underscore our ongoing dedication to fostering a campus community that prioritizes the well-being, safety, and inclusivity of all constituencies. I have complete confidence that Chad and Aura will excel in their new roles. I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your continued support as we work collaboratively to create an exceptional experience at Oakland University.
