Wilma Jackson’s last day at Doane University was Oct. 11.
Jackson was the Director of Multicultural Support Services.
“Dr. Jackson was at Doane for nearly two decades and I know that we are a better place because of her efforts,” Vice President for Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Luis Sotelo, said in an e-mail informing the Doane community of her departure.
Jackson left Doane to pursue another position, the e-mail included.
The DEI will delegate multicultural affairs services and programing among their offices to continue the work Jackson had been doing.
Jackson started at Doane College in 2001 and served as Director of Student Activities for four years until a part-time position opened for Multicultural Director. She then served in that position as well as part-time Director of Community Services.
After a year, Jackson assumed the role of full-time Director of Multicultural Support Services.
The program services included mentoring programs for students of color and other marginalized groups, diversity training and multicultural programming and education.
Jackson was contacted by Doane Student Media, but no comment was made about her departure.
