The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) supports academic and
scholarly excellence for ALL students, faculty and staff by
establishing and sustaining a campus culture that reflects a
fundamental respect for different ways of thinking, living, working and
learning. We view diversity holistically, as encompassing a variety of
dimensions. To ensure a discrimination free learning and working
environment the ODI neither condones nor tolerates practices that
discriminate against any person.
The Office oversees, facilitates, and supports efforts to create an inclusive environment and ensure equal opportunity for the entire University at Albany community.
In effort of supporting the mission of the Office, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion strategically focuses on areas of Institutional Equity and Diversity Transformation:
- Diversity Transformation is facilitated by providing opportunities to dialogue, develop and implement activities that encourage different ideas and perspectives. Funds may also be available to support individual, group and departmental efforts in achieving the goals of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
