Let’s embrace the strength in our differences

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion supports the University’s mission of creating a more diverse learning community. Specifically, the Office and related Centers aims to influence policies, offer programming, and facilitate practice across the broad spectrum of inclusivity and equity. These aims promote a safe, equitable, growth-minded, and engaged campus community, wherein students, staff, and faculty – within and across multiple identities – can feel supported and valued in their personal and professional development.
