Way overdue here is congratulations to veteran Malcsista Rusty Barcelo, newly appointed Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Diversity at the University of Minnesota. Her office oversees Disability Services, Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action, the GLBT Programs Office, the Multicultural Center, and the Office for University Women.
After five years at the University of Washington, Rusty is returning to familiar territory. From 1996 to 2001, she served as Minnesota’s associate vice president for multicultural and academic affairs; two of those years, she also chaired the Chicano studies department on the Twin Cities campus. A grants program for collaborative multicultural projects was established in 2002 and named in her honor.
