PCSM discusses upcoming spring symposium

By Stephanie Sonnenfeld ssonnen@emory.edu

Members of the President’s Commission on the Status of Minorities (PCSM) met briefly on Monday, Nov. 29, in 400 Administration.

Jody Usher, conference and events chair, reported the group’s spring diversity seminar will be held in March and is tentatively titled “Diversity as Value Added.” Usher said the President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) and the President’s Commission on LGBT Concerns have both been invited to cosponsor the half-day symposium.

Chair Nagueyalti Warren said she is working on a study of all minorities at Emory. Brenda Seiton suggested the group contact Daniel Teodorescu of Institutional Planning and Research, who helped the PCSW gather data for a study concerning women faculty and tenure. Warren said she also will be contacting Human Resources for data.

Stanley Taylor of the student concerns committee said the group is scheduled to meet with President Bill Chace regarding issues between minority students and guest speaker David Horowitz, a conservative columnist whovisited Emory in October. He said the committee would report back to PCSM regarding the meeting.

PCSM will meet again on Jan. 27 in 400 Administration at 3 p.m.
