About us

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion represents the University’s ever evolving commitment to realize and sustain a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment for all University community members – students faculty, staff and alumni – and throughout our surrounding communities.

Diversity & Inclusion works closely with a broad spectrum of academic, student and administrative units to strengthen educational inclusive excellence, as well as the University’s democratic civic engagement, in order to promote a strong sense of belonging throughout our diverse communities.
