Asst. Professor Chris Atchinson

Asst. Professor Chris Atchinson

The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research’s National Center for Atmospheric Research (UCAR/NCAR) is a federally funded organization with staff, programs, and projects on all seven continents.  They recently reached out to CECH’s own Chris Atchison, an Assistant Professor in the School of Education, to join the new Diversity and Inclusion External Advisory Committee.

This committee was established by UCAR/NCAR under their new Office for Diversity and Inclusion. Atchison will work with the Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer who reports directly to the UCAR president providing oversight to the process of diversifying the workforce of UCAR/NCAR. The overall goal of the committee is to promote diversity in the workplace, create more welcoming and inclusive environments for staff and visitors, and integrate diversity and inclusivity into their research, education, and outreach.

CECH is proud to associate with Atchison and all of his work in the CECH community that led to this opportunity.
