The Office of Diversity and Inclusion sets priorities and promotes an equity commitment for students, faculty, and staff across campus. We believe equity in thought, feeling, and action fosters measurable diversity, full accessibility, true inclusivity, and meaningful belonging.

Campus Wide Services Include:

  • Strategic planning and consultation – for schools, colleges, and departments that are seeking direction on their unique DEIA plans and initiatives, the ODI provides guidance and planning that aligns with the university’s five-year strategic DEIA plan. Consultation is provided to campus members to address DEIA opportunities and issues.
  • Learning and development – to build awareness and advocacy around the complexities of DEIA, the ODI offers customized educational training for faculty, staff, and students.
  • Disability access – the ODI administers reasonable accommodations for applicable staff and faculty members. Departments, schools, and colleges seeking guidance on accessibility issues can consult with the office.
  • Programming and special initiatives – the ODI develops special programming and initiatives to advance discourse on national DEIA issues and to provide additional support to affected campus members.
