VERMILLION, S.D. -- Lamont Sellers, who has served as director of the USD Center for Diversity & Community for the past two years, has been named the new associate vice president for diversity.

Before coming to USD in 2014 he served as associate director and African American services coordinator at the University of Denver; associate director of the Diversity Institute at Misericordia University in Dallas, Pennsylvania; and as senior academic advisor at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
