New vice president to lead campus diversity efforts
On July 1, Seattle Pacific University welcomed the new vice president for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Sandra Richards Mayo, who was an associate professor and director of the doctoral program in educational leadership at Azusa Pacific University, will join Seattle Pacific’s Senior Leadership Team.
In her previous roles, Richards Mayo has focused on social justice, diversity, and equity. “This inaugural position represents SPU’s commitment to the ongoing work of reconciliation and provides a strategic opportunity to fulfill our institutional mission,” Richards Mayo says. “I am deeply honored to join the community as we set a vision forward to achieve greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we do.”
Adds President Dan Martin: “Dr. Richards Mayo’s addition to SPU’s leadership team is part of our ongoing efforts to reflect the Kingdom of God in this community, living out the call to be reconcilers, and respecting each person’s humanity and uniqueness. This has been a focus for SPU for some time but we know that a senior leader focusing with intention on diversity, inclusion, and reconciliation is a vital step forward.”
