Office of Institutional Diversity


 Extraordinary happens here because EACH of us is uniquely extraordinary. 

We value diversity, equity, and inclusion and take seriously our commitment to being a university where ALL of us can thrive.

The Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) works behind the scenes and on the front lines so that you can feel you belong here.

We see you.

Diversity education helps us all grow in our understanding of the range of experiences and perspectives that make our campus an extraordinary place.
  • Online module

    Everyone's experience with difference is...well, different. To help level the playing field, all of us are expected to complete DiversityEDU, an online learning module.

    During your first year, you'll get to explore topics such as defining diversity, engaging comfortably with difference, examining assumptions, searching for similiarities, and the impact of microaggressions. 

  • Embrace and Respect

    Join us in embracing the diversity of our campus throughout the year with various events to help us understand the range of identities, cultures, and their contributions to our campus and beyond. Let's foster our collective growth beyond awareness and tolerance toward that of inclusion and respect.

  • Learning Sessions

    Experience personal growth through learning sessions to help you develop more inclusive practices.  Let's arrange customized sessions for your group. We work with students and employees. We look forward to working with you.

We hear you.

Your voice matters and has the power to make a difference.
  • Report a concern

    We may be extraordinary, but we are not perfect. Our Cougar Inclusion Team provides support and educational outreach when we hear of an incident of possible bias or exclusion. Let us know. We've got your back. Report a concern here.

  • Advisory Committee

    Your perspective matters. Join our Student DEI Advisory Committee (coming soon) to help inform our work in diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We want you to succeed.

Our programs help you build your network and access the tools you need to be successful.
