Office of Diversity & Inclusion – Student Organizations
Maryville University students are active and involved in over 100 student organizations. There are student organizations representing general interests, spiritual beliefs, cultural groups and social awareness projects. Leaders for Equity Advancement and Diversity Council, L.E.A.D., aims to support the university’s mission, vision, and values around creating a diverse and inclusive campus.
Our purpose is to provide knowledge and resources for those interested in the gender construct spectrum. We will provide students the opportunity to serve with non-profits that comply with our organization goals in the Greater St. Louis Area. We aim to provide an inclusive and diverse community of people who come together in order to better understand the differences between us and empower each other to make an impact in the world around us.
