Equipoise held its annual reception on Dec. 11 to welcome 44 new Black faculty, administrators, and staff to Pitt. About 150 people attended the function at the William Pitt Union, where Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg and Provost James V. Maher participated in a ceremony in which each new employee received a University Equipoise pin.

Equipoise comprises Black faculty, administrators, and staff and seeks to facilitate their goals and objectives.

The reception was given on behalf of the Office of Provost and hosted by Kathy W. Humphrey, vice provost and dean of students; Larry Davis, dean of the School of Social Work; Robert Hill, vice chancellor for public affairs; Clyde Jones, vice chancellor for health sciences development and senior vice president of the Medical and Health Sciences Foundation; and Jeannette South-Paul, chair of the Department of Family Medicine.
