Nancy Chi Cantalupo, associate professor of law, has been named as Wayne State University Law School’s inaugural associate dean of diversity, equity and belonging.

Wayne State University Law School is following the lead of its parent institution, which in 2020 established a Social Justice Action Committee (SJAC) in an effort to join institutions in responding to the call to combat systemic racism, which is consistent with Wayne State’s mission of “positively impacting local and global communities.”
