Professional Development Subcommittee: (Re)Introduction

The Professional Development Subcommittee is a subcommittee of the President’s Committee on Diversity Affairs, and its purpose is to promote and maximize a variety of professional and personal opportunities related to diversity and inclusion in order to improve cultural competency across our campus community of students, staff, and faculty.

The 2020-21 committee members include Karen Brennan (Spiritual and Religious Life), Ed Berthiaume (Communications), Cassie Curry (Planned Giving), Joanna Morey (Center for Academic Success), and Rose Theisen (Research Administration).

The committee shares the University’s commitment to transformation and to become a community dedicated to the active work of antiracism. As part of this commitment, we are improving our communication about professional development opportunities related to diversity and inclusion activities for University employees. Please watch for updates, reminders, and invitations to participate from the Professional Development Subcommittee in future LU Insiders.

The Professional Development Subcommittee is looking for additional staff and faculty to join the committee. Please contact Joanna Morey ( if you are interested in joining the committee.
