Commission on the Status of Minorities (PCSM) revisited pertinent
business and celebrated a year of accomplishments.

committee (who organized the March 3–5 “Diversity As
Value Added” symposium) with glass plaques. She praised all
members for their hard work throughout the year. Warren and Brenda
Nix, PCSM secretary, both received roses from commission members
as thanks for their work.
In other business, Pam Denzmore of the staff concerns committee
said its survey measuring diversity among Emory staff should be
ready to administer by the end of May. Warren has written a letter
to other president’s commissions chairs explaining and encouraging
participation in the survey. Denzmore also added that John Hammond
is working on a web version of the survey.
Sylvester Hopewell of the historical records committee said members
reviewed and compiled minutes from the last 10 years and will continue
the project with additional archives from previous years. Donna

of Women (PCSW), reported that PCSW members were impressed with
PCSM’s list of Board of Trustee (BOT) nominees and will form
