Sandra Mitchell

Director of equity and inclusion, St. Catherine University

Description

As St. Kate’s first director of equity and inclusion, Sandra Mitchell has made significant contributions to its DEI initiatives. This work has been informed by the creation of the St. Paul school’s first inclusive excellence plan. The plan’s development, which she co-led, involved gathering input from more than 200 stakeholders, a climate assessment, and analysis of industry best practices. Mitchell has led several initiatives inspired by the plan, including the university’s inclusive excellence statement, gender-identity inclusion efforts, and creation of an acknowledgement statement that recognizes St. Kate’s presence on Dakota land.
