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.
