This past week DDCE caught up with Dallas attorney Mandisa Price, a University of Texas at Austin alumna and annual donor to the division’s Vice President’s Fund for Excellence to learn why she supports DDCE. “I donate to DDCE, because I believe in its vision and goals,” said Price. In fact, Price served as student member of the Task Force for Racial Respect and Fairness which was instrumental in the formation of the DDCE. She remembers the task force members viewed their role as proactive and transformational in nature. “We really wanted to lay out a vision for the university and ensure that the university maintained and initiated policies that created an atmosphere and culture of inclusion,” she said.  “Fostering diversity and inclusion is important to me. I want to support the programs of the division, which I think are vital to the campus, including but not limited to the Gender and Sexuality Center, Multicultural Engagement Center, and Services for Students with Disabilities. My unrestricted gifts to DDCE provide the opportunity for me to do this.”
