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, as well as reactive to the constant challenges to inclusion and equity in our community and in 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.

The Intercultural Center is excited to celebrate Asian Heritage Month this April, recognizing the rich cultures and experiences found across East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the United States of America.

Students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to take part in as many programs as possible. Click on this link to learn more.
