July 31, 2017 – Introducing Dr. Cheryl Johnson of HSU’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Dr. Cheryl Johnson – the newly appointed executive director of The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) at Humboldt State University, spoke with KHSU about her new job and the road ahead.

Dr. Johnson insists her work is a collaborative effort between HSU’s campus community and the community at large. She wants to impart on the community, “I am one person. I’m going to have to have the help and the partnership of the people here, the community. It’s not an East Oakland narrative. It’s not a Berkeley narrative. It’s a northern rural narrative and that has to be honored and appreciated.”

Previously, Dr. Johnson was the head of the City of Berkeley’s 2020 Vision – a community-wide effort to end the disparities in academic achievement that exist along racial lines among children and youth.
