Let us Strive for a Collective Commitment to Equity
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion supports the University’s mission of creating a more diverse learning community. Developmental and proactive in its approach and reactive to the constant challenges to inclusion and equity in our community and our society, ODI organizes its efforts around offering compelling and representative programming, influencing and enhancing equitable policies, and elevating and informing inclusive practices.
These efforts promote a safe, growth-minded, and engaged campus community, wherein students, staff, and faculty – within and across multiple identities – can feel supported and valued in their academic, social, and professional endeavors. Ultimately, ODI recognizes that “diversity” is not enough, and “inclusion” is but a step towards the ultimate goal of sustaining “equity” for all members of our community.
Women’s History Month
The Women’s Center invites faculty, staff, and students to observe and celebrate Women’s History Month.
Religious Holiday Calendar
Please remember that certain holy days are observed by members of our community when making plans for the academic year.
Faculty, staff, student group leaders, and organizers should consider this when making curricular and co-curricular plans.
Our partnerships across campus help further the vision for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
