Office of Diversity & Inclusion


“I encourage you to live with life. Be courageous, adventurous. Give us a tomorrow, more than we deserve.”
~ Maya Angelou

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion works with the Maryville University community to make our campus a welcoming place for everyone. We play an important role in furthering the University’s strategic plan regarding diversity and inclusion through recruitment, student support, campus programming, collaborating with other departments, and building community partnerships.

Maryville students are encouraged to be themselves and embrace our diversity as an opportunity to grow personally and learn more about the world in which we live.

Join Us!

We’re building a more inclusive campus every day and in many different ways – Diversity Dialogues, cultural programs, student organizations, diverse speakers, community service activities and partnerships, and so much more.
