• Diversity Initiatives

    Our vision for Hamline University, a diverse community of learners with students at the center that transforms lives, combined with our diversity policy, requires a comprehensive and integrated approach across all of our schools, programs, and administrative units. Our vision embraces a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for all -- students, faculty, and staff.

    This initiative approaches the integration of diversity values across five major focus areas:

    • Student learning inside the classroom (faculty development & academic affairs)

    • Students outside the classroom (student affairs)

    • Faculty recruitment and retention

    • Staff recruitment, development, and retention

    • External relations and partnerships

    Diversity work is among the most important things that we can do at Hamline. Our future success depends on our diversity. Organizations and universities who do not find a way to bring their communities together will simply not succeed.

    Hamline welcomes our new Associate Vice President of Inclusive Excellence Dr. David L. Everett.

    “I am delighted to welcome Dr. Everett to our community,” said Hamline President Dr. Fayneese Miller. “He has a proven record of effectiveness and advocacy on inclusion, equity and diversity issues. We have developed a national reputation as a leader in this area and I know that Dr. Everett’s energy and drive will fuel us in the ongoing pursuit of educational equity.”

    “I am pleased, honored and excited to join Hamline University,” Everett said. “Hamline’s rich tradition and its continued emphasis on academic rigor, practical learning experiences and social justice provides a powerful platform to work towards equity, inclusion and diversity across the institution and within the community. I look forward to working with President Miller, other administrators, faculty, staff, students and stakeholders as we collectively strive to ‘do all the good’ we can.”

    Dr. Everett has worked as equity, diversion and inclusivity consultant for the Minnesota Department of Human Services since 2015. While there, Everett was involved in the preparation, delivery and assessment of equity, inclusivity and diversity training programs, for the benefit of internal and external audiences at various levels.
