President of Diversity and Inclusion Declines Job

The new Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion at Cal Poly has decided NOT to take the position. University President Jeffrey Armstrong announced late last night, Paulette Granberry Russell had decided to rescind her acceptance to the position. Her decision came after letter and petition campaigns gathered more than 11,000 signatures from faculty, students, staff, alumni, and community members. School officials say they will continue to make diversity, equity, and inclusion a priority at the university and slow down efforts to conduct a full search to fill the position.
