In January 2018, Goshen College President Dr. Rebecca Stoltzfus issued a mandate for the creation of a Task Force to focus on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion within the campus community.
President Stoltzfus provided the following two year draft charge for the Task Force:
- Communicate and make visible Goshen College’s ongoing work in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.
- Identify what GC is currently doing to promote an inclusive and equitable campus experience for all members of our community — and how well we are doing so.
- Propose ways to improve our effectiveness in being a more inclusive and equitable campus, including identification of what new resources and changes should be considered.
The Task Force was led and facilitated by two co-chairs for 2019-20, Dr. LaKendra Hardware and Dr. David Lind. In addition to the two co-chairs, membership of the Task Force consisted of 12 students, staff and faculty from across campus. Following a self-nomination and community affirmation process, general Task Force members were selected by the Task Force co-chairs in collaboration with President Stoltzfus and a selection process overseer.
