Camille Wallace will lead a variety of programs for the institute’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion that enhance a campus culture in which members are valued, respected and have a sense of belonging.

Camille R. Wallace has been named interim director of diversity and inclusion at Rose-Hulman.

Wallace, a member of the institute staff since 2013, will lead a variety of programs for the institute’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion that enhance a campus culture in which members are valued, respected and have a sense of belonging.

President Jim Conwell says inclusion is an important addition to the center’s name and mission for the future, showcasing that Rose-Hulman not only desires a diverse campus environment, but also a culture of inclusivity.

Wallace points out that former poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou believed: “The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”

“We are committed to doing both at Rose-Hulman. We’re moving forward together,” says Wallace.

Wallace came to Rose-Hulman in 2013 as a special events manager and planned giving assistant in the Office of Institutional Advancement. A year later, she became a training and development manager in the Office of Professional and Organizational Development. Wallace designed and executed engaging learning programs for employees, and also created the Supervisor Development Institute that provides valuable training tools for staff leadership.

In 2017, Rose-Hulman was recognized as a Champion of Learning by the Association for Talent Development for providing a culture of employee professional development and continuous learning. Many of those programs were shaped by Wallace.

“Camille is highly respected by her campus peers. Her skills and energy make her the right person to build on the strong foundation that’s been established for our Center for Diversity and Inclusion,” says Conwell.

Wallace has experience as a program coordinator for the annual Indiana Black Expo and Indiana State University’s African American Cultural Center, and she helped facilitate Rose-Hulman’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Workshop and Student LEADership Academy.

Wallace also founded the Terre Haute Cultural Professionals Connection and BeYoutiful Leaders Consulting organization, both in 2016. She has two academic degrees from ISU: a master’s in human resource development and a bachelor’s in political science and legal studies. She has professional certifications in leadership coaching from Harvard University’s Division of Continuing Education.
