After recently unveiling a new climate “action plan” guided by a campuswide survey revealing — among other things — that minority students still feel less welcome and experience more discrimination than white students, the University of Iowa on Monday announced its pick to head its rebranded Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. TaJuan Wilson, assistant professor and executive director of Student Programs and Diversity at the Medical University of South Carolina, will start as UI associate vice president for diversity, equity, and inclusion June 28. The 32-year-old is the product of an extensive national search, as he’ll succeed UI chief diversity officer, associate vice president, and Title IX coordinator Georgina Dodge, who left UI in July 2017 for a similar job at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania.
