Office of Diversity And Social Justice

May 12, 2022

Dear Campus Community,

I am delighted to announce that Carlos Wiley will join Millersville University on July 1, 2022, as our Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer. Mr. Wiley has served as the director of the Paul Robeson Cultural Center at The Pennsylvania State University since 2010.

Mr. Wiley's passion for diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice started at a young age as a student-athlete at Lockport High School and continues today. At Penn State, he provided programs and support services to encourage and cultivate the appreciation and celebration of under-represented communities' diverse perspectives, experiences, and cultures.

A standout football player at Quincy University, Mr. Wiley received his bachelor's degree in sociology, after helping to create the university's Black Student Union. He went on to get his master's degree in education from the University of Wisconsin Platteville. While at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, he served as an assistant football coach, the multicultural admission advisor and then the interim director of the Multicultural Educational Resource Center.

Mr. Wiley has brought diverse students to multiple universities, creating mentoring programs and diversity advocate programs. His successes have been based in social justice, racial identity development and inclusive excellence. His goal has been to equip students with the tools to empower themselves and others, to take responsibility for their actions and behavior, and to serve in a global world.

I am looking forward to Carlos providing strategic leadership for the Office of Diversity and Social Justice at Millersville as well as to supporting our entire community.

I would like to thank the search committee, chaired by Dr. Rachel Finley-Bowman, for their outstanding work. Other members of the search committee were Dr. Onek Adyanga, Mr. Scott Anderson, Ms. Jan Bechtel, Dr. Patriece Campbell, Dr. Justin Garcia, Mr. Christopher Hamilton, Mr. Carlos Morla, Dr. Erin Moss, Dr. Hannah Osborn, Dr. Karen Rice, Ms. Lori Souder, and Dr. Miriam Witmer.

Kindly join me in welcoming Mr. Carlos Wiley to Millersville University.

Warm regards,

Daniel A. Wubah
University President

    The death of George Floyd has left us all with a heavy heart, and a troubled mind. We recognize as a community the need to actively work towards a path of anti-racism, and in the words of the great Angela Davis, "It is not enough to be non-racist, we must be antiracist." The Office of Diversity and Social Justice is committed to the dismantling of racism and systemic oppression, to ensure a safe and inclusive environment for all. For those who wish to take steps towards anti-racism action, we share a collection of literature gathered by Jane Mount to assist you in the journey of becoming an aspiring ally.
