WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State University has named an assistant dean to a new position for diversity. The Wichita Eagle reports that WSU President John Bardo has named Marche Fleming-Randle, assistant dean of the university's Fairmount College of Liberal Arts & Science, to become assistant to the president for diversity. University spokesman Lou Heldman says Fleming-Randle, who was also appointed recently as adviser to the student governing association, has considerable credibility with students. Fleming-Randle says in a prepared statement that her job is to move the university "forward on diversity." The announcement comes amid several student concerns, including lack of staff diversity. A Wichita State University student protest planned for Wednesday at the Kansas Board of Regents meeting at the university was canceled Tuesday afternoon. Student body president Joseph Shepard announced on his Facebook page that he had worked out an agreement with President John Bardo after a two-hour meeting.
