A hallmark of the values at Geneseo is our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). The Division of Finance and Administration seeks to consistently embrace these values and incorporate them into the way we serve the campus community and beyond everyday.
In 2021, to further advance our commitment, Julie Buehler, Vice President for Finance and Administration convened the Finance and Administration (FA) Diversity Group to include representation across the division. Current members include Christa Aldrich, Chair and Talent Acquisition Manager, Robert Ames, Assistant Vice President for Facilities & Planning, Carey Chappius, Business/Systems Analyst, and Mathew Felthousen, Executive Director of Campus Auxiliary Services.
The new team reviewed current practices and how we can better infuse our commitment to DEI into our culture and practices. Unless otherwise noted all of these are in place. Staff across the division will be working on many of these items throughout the upcoming academic year. Some examples are highlighted here, many of which represent current practices that are successful in their infusion of DEI.
