The Diversity Academy was established
within the Office of Academic Affairs in
2007-08, led by former Associate Vice
Chancellor Sheying Chen. A grant from
the President’s IU Diversity Initiative
brought us two post-doctoral fellows
who stimulated multicultural curricular
development, Allison Riggle (2009-10)
and Seonmin Huh (2010-11).
Judy Myers, School of Nursing,
became the academy’s first faculty
fellow in research (2009-11). She has
collaborated with Floyd Memorial
Hospital to test the efficacy of massage
therapy to alleviate the after-effects of
fatigue and insomnia suffered by women
radiated for breast cancer.
