About the Diversity Center

The Diversity Center is by students and for students. The center opened with student assistants fully integrated to provide the vibrant force of the student voice.

The 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.

Mission statement

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.

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.
