We embrace diversity as a proven path to institutional excellence
The Office of Diversity Initiatives represents the University's commitment to realize and sustain a diverse, inclusive and welcoming environment for all University community members, including students, faculty, faculty colleagues and alumni. Diversity Initiatives works closely with academic and administrative units to attract, advance and retain a diverse faculty to strengthen academic excellence.
We are committed to excellence through diversity by offering centers and resources that encourage, counsel, develop and administer a more inclusive campus climate. View All Campus Resources.
We encourage the campus community to become involved with and learn more about several diversity committees charged with promoting the best practices and policies to realize a more diverse university. Get involved.
We present regular diversity and inclusion training opportunities that are available to faculty, staff and students through a number of offices across our campus. Learn more about diversity training.
