The Office for Diversity and Inclusion works to enhance educational and professional diversity by seeking to integrate individuals from varied backgrounds and characteristics such as those defined by race, ethnicity, national origin, age, gender, veteran, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background and intellectual perspective.

We believe that enhancing diversity and providing an educational and work environment in which thought, creativity, and growth are stimulated is a vital university objective and critically important to the mission of allowing individuals to realize their full potential through equal opportunity.

The units that comprise the arm of this administration support initiatives and facilitate programs that seek to enhance the university’s ability to recruit and retain underrepresented students, faculty and staff. Diversity Affairs strives to protect the rights of the underrepresented while nurturing a welcoming campus environment.
