Diversity Programs

The Office of Student Life delivers diversity education and programs to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for minority populations and serves as a link between culturally diverse students and the University community.

Our goal is to promote education and self-reflection in order to have an inclusive, welcoming, and respectful campus where each individual values differences including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic background, age, ability, and religious preference.

Trainings, workshops, and resources for students, faculty, and staff are available upon request by contacting the Office of Student Life.

Celebrate Women's History Month at The W through a variety of campus events.
