Roseboro Focuses UNCW Diversity Efforts


DONYELL ROSEBORO, a professor at UNCW’s Watson College of Education, now is serving as interim chief diversity officer for the school.

She started in the position July 20 after Kent Guion stepped down from the role to join the University of North Carolina Wilmington’s College of Health and Human Services faculty.

Roseboro, a professor in the department of instructional technology, foundations, and secondary education, came to UNCW in 2007.

“UNCW is at a critical juncture in the growth of its programs and services to address diversity, inclusion, and equity,” says UNCW Chancellor Jose Sartarelli. “Under Dr. Roseboro’s leadership, I’m confident that OIDI will help the university take an even more in-depth and determined approach with the programs we are developing and will soon announce to address concerns about systemic racism expressed by students, faculty, staff, and alumni.”
