Responsibilities:
• Strategically lead DEI work on campus
• Collaborate with the Leadership Team and Strategic Planning Committees to execute and expand Harpeth Hall’s DEI strategic goals for the near and long term
• Examine the curriculum and academic policies alongside individual departments and the Academic Council and help identify areas where antiracist and anti-oppression teaching can be incorporated
• Join the Admission Team and partner with Leadership Team to recruit students, faculty, and staff from underrepresented groups
• Plan and implement on-going DEI training for current faculty and staff
• Collaborate with Division Directors to expand the DEI on-boarding program for new faculty and staff
