Four campus leaders — Adrienne Davis, Emelyn dela Peña, Nicole Hudson and Sherree Wilson — have joined forces to strengthen diversity and inclusion initiatives across campuses and populations. It’s a new effort and one that is unusual among universities. The leaders will speak this week at the Day of Discovery, Dialogue & Action.
