Schrader. “Under Shenethia Manuel’s direction, the office of human resources, equity and inclusion will continue to take a leading role in making Missouri S&T a more vibrant, welcoming place to learn and work. I thank Shenethia and her team for their ongoing efforts to foster this inclusive environment.”

Manuel holds a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Texas-Austin, a Master of Arts in Ministry and Culture from Phillips Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Oklahoma,Norman. She also serves on the executive committee for the Commission on Access, Diversity and Excellence, a commission of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU).

As Vice Chancellor of Human Resources, Equity and Inclusion, Manuel is responsible for overseeing Missouri S&T’s Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives; Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity oversight and planning; equity issues; and oversight of the university’s Title IX compliance. As S&T’s chief diversity officer, Manuel also serves as the liaison to the Chancellor’s Committee on African American Recruitment and Retention and serves as chair of the Chancellor’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion.
