Message from the Office

On behalf of the entire staff, Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Our mission is to create an inclusive campus environment for all students, faculty, and staff. We do this by creating opportunities for students to gain real-life, hands-on developmental experiences, through student organizations, programs, and workshops that focus on cultural engagement, cultural education, cultural development, while continuously developing campus partnerships and the campus environment.

We are passionate about diversity, inclusion, social justice, and the development of individuals. Our goal is to develop critical thinkers and inclusive leaders that are forward-thinking and prepared to work in a diverse world. We invite you to engage and participate in the various opportunities to assist you with having a rich and diverse experience.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is in the Donius University Center, in the Center for Student Engagement. Please come by to engage and continue your development as a Saint.

We hope to connect with you!
