Bringing Together Multiple Perspectives
Creating a Culture of Academic and Inclusive Excellence
Embracing student diversity and multiple perspectives is critical to the success of the campus community. As part of Institute Diversity, the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion encourages students to excel academically, interact across cultures and perspectives, and value inclusion.
The Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion also strives to be a positive, enriching environment to connect diverse students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community stakeholders through effective programs, projects, networks, and research.
Focusing on the recruitment, retention, and advancement of underrepresented minority and women students, the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion will house a forthcoming Outreach Initiative and currently houses the following units: Office of Hispanic Initiatives (OHI), OMED: Educational Services, and Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology (WST).
“I am excited to see how the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion can create synergy among units in sharing resources, insights, and connections to help increase the diversity of our student population.”
— Auston Kennedy, undergraduate student, H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering
