Advancing Our Antiracism Initiative

We are thrilled to welcome Peony Fhagen (pictured below, left), who will join the CC community as the new senior associate dean for equity, inclusion, and faculty development, and Rosalie M. Rodriguez (pictured below, center), who will join CC as the senior associate dean of students for equity and inclusion/director of the Butler Center. Additionally, Barbara J. Wilson (pictured below, right) has been named to serve as the interim director of diversity, equity, and inclusion for staff.

To enhance and accelerate the work of the new DEI leadership team, CC Board of Trustees Chair Susie Burghart ’77 has donated $1 million to further the college’s Antiracism Initiative.

“I wanted to underscore how important this initiative is to all of us — as educators, parents, students, staff, and alumni,” Burghart says. “These experts will guide the college in long-needed work that is now even more crucial. This is a moment when CC can lead and make a difference.”
