Our Mission

Diversity Center

Located in Lower Level Memorial Hall


The purpose of the Diversity Center is to help foster a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment for students to explore, express, and engage in identity development of oneself and others. This will be achieved through education, conversations, and programming that are relevant and necessary for growth. In addition, the Diversity Center provides additional resources such as individual cultural support, a diverse library (books, magazines, pamphlets),  connections to the surrounding diverse communities, and opportunities to volunteer and lead. Please stop by for a visit and get connected.
