Meet The CEC: Tyrone Russell

What is your primary role here at Lehigh?

My key responsibility as Director of Multicultural Affairs at Lehigh is to create and manage systems of support for historically underrepresented students. This includes but isn't  limited to assisting in programming, advising, and supervising students.

Why are you involved in the CEC?

I am involved with CEC selfishly because it provides comfort to know there are a host of Lehigh professionals dedicated to inclusion on our campus.

What working groups/initiatives are you involved in?

I am part of the Executive Committee.

What are you hoping for as a result of your involvement with the CEC?

I hope my work will result in a genuine valuing of challenge and support for all who bear and represent the Lehigh brand. I want people to welcome the differences and diversity that challenge their comfort zones.

What advice or direction do you have for someone who wants to be engaged in making Lehigh more diverse and inclusive?

Start by challenging yourself and the biases that you have. Get involved with someone or something that you typically ignore or shy away from. Be the only one of "you" in a room and leave an impression.
