'Margins' Ep. 12: The Wrap Up — In The Margins, Until Another Time...

Dr. Christopher Whitt has worked as a change maker in the Quad Cities community for over a decade. He recently accepted the opportunity to take on the role of the inaugural Vice Provost for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.

"Surely when I am leading innovation in diversity across the university as a member of the university's Provost's Council and President's Cabinet, I will be informed by the many lessons learned from years of collaborating with colleagues here at Augustana and throughout the Quad Cities," Whitt says.

In this final episode of Margins, Whitt talks with producer Lacy Scarmana about what he has accomplished over the past 10 years, the creation of this podcast, and his goals for the future as he takes on a new leadership role at Creighton.
