The Normandale Equity Fellows.

Welcome to Our First-Ever Equity Fellows

Normandale is committed to an "Equity 2025" vision

This includes eliminating race-based gaps in educational outcomes by 2025, achieving a completion rate of 50% or better for degree-seeking students, and fostering a culturally competent, service-oriented institutional culture.

Team includes: Murugi Mutiga-Waititu (she/her), Health Faculty; Bridget Fitzpatrick (she/her), Anthropology Faculty; George Krueger (he/him), General Maintenance Worker Lead; Archie Arnold (they/he), Director of Grants & Sponsored Projects; Álvaro Plachejo (he/him), Economics Faculty; Jeremy McNamara (he/him), Academic Advisor; Jen Westmoreland Bouchard (she/her), French Faculty; and Njia Lawrence-Porter (she/her), Academic Advisor.

Making Normandale a stronger, more equitable institution.

The Equity Fellows, appointed by President Joyce Ester after a competitive application process, will help Normandale make this ambitious vision a reality. Representing faculty and staff positions across all college divisions, the eight Fellows are essential members of a newly formed Strategic Initiatives Group that also includes President Ester and her cabinet, and leaders from the departments of HR and Equity and Institutional Research and Planning.
