About


 The Diversity Center will open no later than May 1, 2017.  During April students assistants will be interviewed, selected and trained and the diversity center space will be cleaned and furnished for an anticipated opening toward the end of April or first of May. The Diversity Center is by students and for students. Therefore it is imperative that the Center opens with student assistants fully integrated into the center to provide the vibrant force of student voice.

The Diversity Center will serve as a “hub” for coordinating student diversity, equity and inclusion efforts across campus and building community. In order to act on the Center’s mission and role, the center will provide meeting space for student clubs, organizations, or student(s) whose mission, purpose, or goals is consistent with the center’s mission and roles.
