- Student Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity enriches our education by offering worlds of experience and cultural memory as opportunities to appreciate and develop new knowledge and practices. Inclusion is how we intentionally create an affirming learning environment that recognizes diversity as integral to our success.
Collective responsibility in the obstruction of injustice through the intentional cultivation of a culture of inclusion beyond compositional diversity.
To unite students, faculty and staff in collaborative efforts to promote social justice by working to eliminate health and educational disparities.
What We Do
Diversity and inclusion create new possibilities and outcomes through intentional and sustainable efforts. This enhances our intellectual environment with insight, perspective and initiatives that define who we are and what we do.
Students are the heart of this institution. To ensure an affirming learning environment, the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion is dedicated to creating brave spaces and initiatives that support the well being of our students within and beyond their coursework. This also includes responding to incidences of bias that involve our community. Please feel free to engage the director with any ideas, suggestions or concerns.
