Dr. Ty-Ron M. O. Douglas of the University of California, Berkeley joined BIOS on October 29. Dr. Douglas is the first-ever Associate Athletic Director for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at Cal and has served at the University of Missouri as an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis and an affiliate faculty member in the school's Black Studies Program.
We learned so much from Dr. Douglas! He discussed athletes as scholars, the divides between academia and athletics, especially for our black student-athletes and challenging anti-blackness as an imperative for all. We invite you to read more about Dr. Douglas' work and to join us for upcoming BIOS events. We're bringing top research and athletics together here at UW-Madison, one of the world's great institutions of higher learning.
