University Diversity and Inclusion

The Office of University Diversity and Inclusion provides leadership and support to campus and the community to address issues, policies and potential barriers to creating a welcoming and respectful working and learning environment. The Director of University Diversity and Inclusion coordinates the efforts of university committees, councils, deans, campus leaders and community stakeholders to address issues of diversity in the recruitment of faculty, staff, and students as well as academic programs, infrastructure, and university policy.

The Office of University Diversity and Inclusion also collaborates with campus organizations and regional community organizations to develop, promote and host innovative training, programs, and conferences that enhance the university climate, promote a culture of inclusion and demonstrate the universities commitment to excellence and diversity
