PSU Welcomes the New VP of Global Diversity & Inclusion
Dr. Ame Lambert
Portland State University is pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Ame Lambert as Vice President for Global Diversity and Inclusion. Dr. Lambert has begun her new role at PSU in August 2020.
Dr. Lambert joins PSU from Roger Williams University in Rhode Island, where she served as the Vice President for Equity and Inclusion, and Chief Diversity Officer — ensuring equity was embedded into all university operations. Dr. Lambert’s goal at Portland State is to close the gap between potential and thriving for students and the university as a whole.
"We are thrilled to have Ame Lambert join us to lead our efforts to promote diversity, inclusion, and equity at Portland State,” says President Stephen Percy. “In her previous higher education positions, Dr. Lambert has achieved measurable results in the areas of retention and success for both students, faculty, and staff — all high priorities for PSU."
Dr. Lambert reports to the PSU President in her new role as the senior officer responsible for the important work of promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion across the campus and in the greater community through strategic planning, collaboration, and innovation.
