Frist Center associate director Dr. Dave Caudel

Dr. Dave Caudel has been invited to join Vanderbilt’s 2020-2021 University Diversity Council. He is the first-ever representative on this council from the Frist Center for Autism and Innovation.

The Diversity Council is made up of faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students, and postdocs. It is also charged with making periodic strategic recommendations to the interim chancellor on ways in which the university can further inclusive excellence among faculty, staff, students and postdoctoral fellows and promote a welcoming and respectful environment. Last year, the council was co-chaired by André L. Churchwell, the vice chancellor for equity, diversity and inclusion, and William H. Robinson, the vice provost for academic advancement.
