Tracy Kizer, who serves as an associate professor of marketing in Rollins’ Crummer Graduate School of Business, has been appointed Special Assistant to the President for Strategic Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) for the 2023-24 academic year.

Kizer has already contributed extensively to DEIB initiatives at Rollins. She is a member of the DEIB Strategic Planning Steering Committee and co-chaired the task force examining DEIB initiatives with an academic focus. She has profound passion for this work and is excited to further her commitment to the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in this new role.

Kizer will coordinate offices and initiatives across the entire campus, working in collaboration with newly appointment Special Assistant to the Provost for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging, Eric Smaw, and others comprising a core leadership team for the plan.

“The success of any plan depends on the execution of its initiatives,” says Susan Singer, vice president for academic affairs and provost. “To assure that we have focus, accountability, consistent measurements of progress, and steady commitment to the plan’s success, Dr. Kizer will be working to coordinate offices and initiatives across the entire campus. I am thrilled to have someone with her expertise and commitment to DEIB to lead this work, and I am grateful for her readiness to serve.”
