We’ll talk with Tony Boston, Dickinson’s inaugural chief diversity officer. “Diversity, equity and inclusion work is for everyone,” Boston says. “I want to invite as many voices into this conversation as possible because we all have stories to tell and experiences and backgrounds to contribute to this work.”
Plus, Associate Professor of Mathematics and Data Analytics Jeff Forrester brings us a new puzzle question, and President John E. Jones III ’77, P’11 discusses the latest leg of the Dickinson Forward Tour.
Tony Boston arrived at Dickinson in October 2022. He's an experienced diversity officer and equity advocate who will lead the college's diversity efforts as vice president and chief diversity officer. In addition to his interview below, Boston also shared more about himself and his vision for his leadership position in a special Q&A.
Puzzler: “But I Don’t Believe in Numerology!”
In this episode’s puzzler, we are looking for a place:
Walter Sparrow, we've got your number,

Two jaunty cats would likely have this many lives of fun!
Listen to the question at the 2:39 mark.
