Blanche Hughes, vice president for student affairs, has been selected by President Joyce McConnell to lead the Race, Bias, and Equity Initiative.

“With Blanche’s vibrant and collaborative leadership, we will move the RBEI at CSU forward stronger and faster,” McConnell said in announcing the appointment on Oct. 21, adding that other members of the campus community will be added soon.

The initiative is now taking proposals from current faculty, staff and students on ideas to empower all members of the campus community to learn, work, live and recreate in a safe and welcoming environment.

Proposals will be accepted on an ongoing basis, with current first consideration going to those submitted by Nov. 11, 2019.
