About Us

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) serves as the focal point for promoting the University’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion was established in the fall of 2010, as the successor to the Office of Diversity and Affirmative Action. In establishing the ODI, the University signaled its commitment to redirect and strengthen its efforts in the area of diversity and inclusion.

In alignment with the University's mission and the charge of the office, the ODI offers the following support to the University community:

  • Provides support and resources for academic and professional staff recruitment and hiring efforts.
  • Provides consultation & mediation on allegations and/or inquiries related to discrimination and sexual harassment/sexual assault.
  • Educates and monitors the campus community on policies and procedures related to civil rights laws and regulations.
  • Facilitates opportunities to dialogue and participate in activities and initiatives that encourage the exchange of different ideas and perspectives and promotes the development of inclusive working and learning environments.
