Two new associate deans are poised to support inclusive practice and student success at the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Hillary Potter has agreed to serve as the inaugural associate dean of inclusive practice in the College of Arts and Sciences. Potter, who is also associate professor of ethnic studies, has been a member of the faculty since 2005 and assumes the new role in July.
In her new capacity, Potter will play an integral role in realizing the college’s core mission to develop students as future leaders in the diverse global community of the 21st century. The associate dean for inclusive practice will have the primary responsibility of supporting and advancing a college culture of diversity, equity, inclusion and cultural competence.
Additionally, Daryl Maeda, has agreed to serve as the college’s associate dean for student success. Maeda, associate professor and former chair of ethnic studies, has been a member of the faculty since 2005 and assumes his new role in August.
In his new capacity, Maeda will oversee the CU Boulder Academic Advising Center, A&S student recruitment and scholarships, its residential academic programs and the curriculum office. These are critically important functions, because they are inextricably linked to the university’s strategic imperatives, said James W.C. White, interim dean of the college.
"Together, Potter and Maeda are well poised to help us better serve the students of today and of the future," he said.
