In addition to her role as chief diversity officer, she is a tenured professor in the CWRU Department of English. This presentation brings Dr. Mobley back to CSU with a reflection on her experience as Assistant Director of the Black Studies Program and Coordinator of the Afro-American Cultural Center (1980-1981), which is now newly named the Howard A.
