"The mission of our institution invites students and employees to dedicate their time and effort to advancing multicultural awareness and to dedicate their services to undeserved populations. I work to keep our mission at the top of the school's agenda. Despite this focus, and my personal commitment to it, I found my own awareness of diversity challenged in a new way and at a very personal level by the student's comments. Women are often on the defense when it comes to matters of leadership, and immigrant women often have an added layer of complexity to manage."- Dr. Nealon Woods.
