OSU Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Jason Kirksey has been re-elected to the board of directors for the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE). The organization aims to serve as the preeminent voice for diversity officers in higher education.
NADOHE President Paulette Granberry Russell praised Kirksey’s reelection: “His commitment to justice and equity in higher education, his role as vice president for Institutional Diversity and CDO at Oklahoma State University, and his support of NADOHE through active engagement is integral to our collective success.”
First elected to a three-year term in 2018, Kirksey said he is excited to continue working with diversity officers from across the country in an effort to build on OSU’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and to promote equality across the higher education landscape.
“NADOHE is the preeminent voice for chief and senior diversity officers across the nation, and more recently internationally. It is truly an honor to be recognized and appreciated as a national leader among my peers and colleagues,” he said. “The significant and unwavering commitment of OSU in enriching and advancing our culture of inclusion continues to garner national visibility and recognition. I appreciate the impact of OSU’s continued diversity and inclusion efforts, which generated my opportunity to serve in this prestigious role.”
NADOHE’s membership includes more than 1,400 institutional, individual, and affiliate members active in the diversity, equity and inclusion space. For more information about NADOHE, visit nadohe.org.
