Director of Diversity and Inclusion Update

Dear AAP Community,

I am excited to share that we have completed the hiring process for the new Director of Diversity and Inclusion position at AAP. Later this month, Latesha Fussell will fill this critical position, working directly with both student services and the future Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion, yet to be appointed. In her new role, she will support our students from entry to graduation, and as they look toward career paths beyond their education. I want to extend my gratitude to all who participated in visioning for the position and in the thoughtful process of Latesha's recruitment.

I look forward to all that she will bring to the college and​ invite you to join me in welcoming her to our AAP community.

Please read more about Latesha in this article.
