WILLMAR — Jehana Schwandt has been appointed as the director of diversity, equity and inclusion at Ridgewater College, according to a news release from the school.

The recent interim director of diversity, equity and inclusion, Schwandt also has served as an academic adviser and part-time diversity officer and Multicultural Club adviser for years.
