In this second in a series of conversations with DOIT certified school presidents, Diverse host Ralph Newell welcomes David T. Hayes, president of Coe College.
Tune in as Hayes speaks to building a safe space for open and honest conversations at Coe, one of only three schools to receive the inaugural DOIT (Diverse Organizational Impact and Transformation) certification. He will discuss the role of small liberal arts colleges in preparing students to be citizens in a participatory democracy.
The talk is not all business though. We also learn what is on Hayes’s bucket list, his love for Star Wars, and why there is no such thing as too much coffee.
- Hayes's revolving journey to Coe College
- Why Hayes continues the challenging work of DEI
- Examining the decision to expand the role of diversity officer
- How Coe College measures progress and initiatives
- Building spaces for open and honest conversations
- Anti-DEI legislation and its effect on higher education institutions
“When else would you rather be trying to put your shoulder into an institution to move it forward and keep it healthy and vibrant than at a time of challenge and with the disruption of the last several years.”
“Coe was such a great experience for me as an undergrad. I have a lot of loyalty to Coe, and I literally want every student, faculty, staff, community member, and alum to have that same feeling of gratitude toward the college because they feel like the college added value to their lives.”
