The mission is to advocate for and collaborate with others to support a safe and inclusive campus community where resources will promote equity and social justice for all students, advocate and support students through education, and foster student success to marginalized and underrepresented communities at the University. The Diversity Center is by students and for students.
The Diversity Center will provide support, resources, and programs that focus on the intersections of students within and across minoritized student groups. The support and resources provided to minoritized students will build on their current knowledge, bolster resilience, and provide spaces in which minoritized students can develop counter-narratives about their personal identities and resilience. 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.
