About

The Diversity Center is by students and for students. The Center will open 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.

Primary roles

  • Provide support, resources, advocacy, programming, and mentoring for minoritized students and those affected by systems of oppression;
  • Offer educational opportunities to the broader campus about minoritized identities and social justice issues both independently and through partnerships;
  • Advocate and support institutional transformation in policy and practice toward greater diversity, equity, and liberation.
