PEORIA (25 NEWS) - Bradley University has its first Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Warren Anderson will oversee the development of the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, according to a release.

He has served as senior equity, diversity and inclusion officer for the University of Wisconsin System for the last 11 months.

Previously, he served as vice chancellor for equity, diversity, inclusion and student affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. There, he led the creation of the Center for Racial and Restorative Justice.

“It is an honor to be selected for this transformative role at one of the best universities in the Midwest,” Anderson said. “During my visit to the university, it was clear to me that the students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members want to be partners to make Bradley University one of the most culturally competent universities in the nation. While the development of the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is just the first step in this process, I have every belief that this initial investment will serve the Bradley community for generations to come.”
