Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014

This past fall, the University launched the Office for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) with the goal of advancing the recruitment, retention, and success of a diverse community of faculty, staff and students. Associate Provost Aldo Billingslea, along with Dr. Jesse Bernal, Program Director, are collaborating with several campus units to promote academic excellence through a diverse and inclusive campus climate.

After completing his campus-wide listening tour, Aldo will be developing a diversity and inclusion needs assessment for Santa Clara University. Aldo and Jesse welcome ongoing communication and feedback. Please feel free to stop by Walsh 103, visit, or email
