About Us

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.

Message from the Director

On behalf of the entire staff, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Whether you are a current student, alumni, community partner, parent, or Maryville University employee, we invite you to participate in the numerous opportunities provided through our office.

Our primary mission is to create ways for students to gain relevant experience and understanding of the world around them by first seeking the needs, interests and potential within themselves. This is accomplished through programming, student organizations, and workshops that engage the campus community on a critical and substantial level.

Our staff is passionate about diversity and social justice. Together, we creatively address issues and look for innovative approaches to meet the needs of all of our constituency groups.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
