The University of Arkansas envisions a world committed to inclusivity, where diversity, equity, access and civility are valued as a part of our culture, climate and everyday lives. The University’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion strives to make this vision a reality by reinforcing inclusive excellence in everything we say and do. We have a responsibility as engaged citizens to consistently incorporate behaviors and practices that support an inclusive environment on campus, in Arkansas and everywhere.
Our top priority is to give people from diverse backgrounds a voice. Hear the stories, personal experiences and achievements of students, faculty, and staff members at the University of Arkansas.
