Authored with Dr. Katrina Wade-Golden, The Chief Diversity Officer: A Primer for College and University Presidents was the first major publication ever authored on the CDO role in American Higher Education. Published by the American Council of Education (ACE), it offers strategic guidance for leaders interested in understanding the foundational archetypes of CDO structure, how to design the CDO role for effectiveness and key principles for helping new CDO’s get off to a fast start.
It offers an abridged version of concepts later explored in The Chief Diversity Officer: Strategy, Structure, and Change Management.
The Chief Diversity Officer was authored to specifically provide guidance to college and university presidents interested in developing the CDO role on their campuses. To support this effort, it features a presidential response from President Mark Emmert, formerly of the University of Washington (Now CEO of the NCAA), and President Rebecca Chopp, formerly of Colgate University (Now President of University of Denver), respectively.
