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.

Black History Month

The Intercultural Center invites you to celebrate Black History Month as an opportunity to recognize and celebrate global Black & African Diaspora communities’ values, arts, music, and cultures.

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.
