Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
How do we define Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is recognizing, respecting, embracing, and celebrating our cultural differences regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, age, differing abilities or membership in other minoritized/marginalized groups. It is disrupting systemic barriers through policy, programs, and services. It is including, empowering, and uplifting historically marginalized voices with the goal of achieving a more equitable and justice society.
The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is charged with creating and implementing the institutional DEI strategic plan. We will promote the pillars of DEI while providing opportunities for engagement of students, staff, and faculty. We will serve as the institutional hub for campus-wide DEI initiatives.
