Mark Kennedy

Diversity and Inclusion

Universities must play an active role in addressing the inequalities that plague our society. At the core of the unequal burden imposed by the pandemic is unequal access to higher education. As a first­ generation college graduate, Kennedy is passionate about extending the opportunities higher education provides to less represented communities.
