Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our Mission

We are fully committed to building a community of fellowship that cherishes the sacred dignity of every human being and fully engages a collaborative, transformative educational process across boundaries of all expressions of human difference.

Our Vision

We envision a university where equity and inclusion:

  • Fosters a shared sense of belonging with the understanding that a broad range of diverse perspectives enriches the quality of our learning, scholarship, leadership, and service.
  • Is fully integrated as core institutional values which inform thinking, practices, policies, and accountability.
  • Enriches our community through unequivocal advocacy, protection, and care for the whole person in advancing social justice.

We achieve this work through:

  • Advocacy
  • Education and training
  • Campus wide programming
  • Building institutional capacity
  • Assessment and policy review
