Diversity Consultants

The AAN Diversity Consultants are crucial members of the Network’s planning team.  They meet regularly with the node leaders to discuss the AAN’s evolving curriculum, proposed projects, and future directions.  Their incisive questions and innovative ideas help ensure that the Network supports career advancement for academics across the full spectrum of disciplinary, intellectual, cultural, and demographic diversity on our campus.
