In January 2016, I formed the Presidential Task Force on Diversity & Inclusion, and for the past year this dedicated group of students, faculty, administrators, and trustees has undertaken a complex and deliberate process of discussion, consultation, and analysis with the goal of making Barnard a more representative, inclusive, and equitable place.
