President's Council on Diversity and Inclusion

The role of the council is to serve as advisors to the President and the administration of The University of West Florida on matters related to diversity and inclusion.


In 2012 President Judith Bense created The President’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion. The role of the council is to serve as advisors to the President and the administration of The University of West Florida on matters related to diversity and inclusion. The Council convened for their first meeting September 19, 2012. Dr. Kevin Bailey, Vice President for Student Affairs led the charge. 

In September 2013 Dr. Kim M. LeDuff was hired as Chief Diversity Officer/Associate Vice Provost for Equity, Diversity and International Affairs. The Chief Diversity Officer met with the President’s Council for Diversity and Inclusion for the first time October 16, 2013. In that meeting the Council was divided into four subcommittees: Students, Faculty, Staff and Community. Each subcommittee closely examined diversity needs in each area and reported their findings back to the Council-at-large. Subcommittees were also encouraged to invite others who might have a vested interest in their area to participate in the meetings and discussions leading up to the report.
