Joshua is passionate about and skilled at leading and coordinating strategic efforts to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion within Christian higher education contexts. I have witnessed him leverage his influence to: Partner with university leaders to collaboratively design and implement DEI initiatives that support the education and development of campus constituency, Provide leadership for Ethnic Affinity Organization to bolster the recruitment and retention of faculty, staff, and students of color, and Participate in university strategic planning campaigns (e.g., campus climate study, SWOT analyses, etc.) aimed at effectuating institutional change.
Joshua has a heart for students, faculty, and staff. He demonstrates the emotional intelligence and intellectual acuity to engage a variety of people in a sensitive, strategic, and productive way. He has a gift for building bridges and using his influence to elevate collaboration, camaraderie, and collegiality towards a common goal.
