Three law school members to work on UGA diversity and inclusion initiatives


Three members of the law school community have been selected to help steer recently announced UGA diversity and inclusion initiatives. University Professor & Kilpatrick Chair of Corporate Finance and Securities Law Usha Rodrigues will serve on the Presidential Task Force on Race, Ethnicity and Community, while UGA Associate Provost Elizabeth Weeks - who also holds the law school's Kirbo Chair - and rising second-year student Roya Naghepour will serve on the Planning Committee on Diversity and Inclusive Excellence.

The task force will focus on immediate issues and develop initiatives and actions that UGA can take to foster a more welcoming and supportive learning environment for Black and other underrepresented members of the UGA campus community. The planning committee will cast a longer vision and develop a comprehensive plan, with specific goals and measures of success, that builds on UGA's most recent diversity plan.
