The final two public candidates to be Kansas University’s new vice provost of diversity and equity visited the KU campus this week.
Cynthia Warrick made a public appearance Wednesday. Warrick recently served as interim president at South Carolina State University, a historically black institution, and is a senior fellow in the School of Pharmacy at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Bernard Oliver was the fourth and final candidate to appear on campus, visiting today. He is a professor in the School of Human Development and Organizational Studies at the University of Florida, where he is also a program coordinator for education leadership.
The first two finalists for the job — Sheying Chen of Pace University in New York and Robert Pratt of the University of Georgia — visited campus last week. The new diversity chief will replace Fred Rodriguez, who is retiring this month.
