The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) supports the successful transition, engagement, and persistence for historically underrepresented communities such as racially diverse student populations such as Asian/Pacific Islander, African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, and Multiracial students; students within the LGBTQ+ community; and/or students who are first in their families to attend college. The ODI also provides educational outreach to the entire campus community through programming, awareness months and collaborative efforts with student organizations and university departments. With the goal of "creating meaningful connections," the ODI focuses intensely on the promotion of an inclusive campus environment for all students to enjoy.
As students learn more about issues facing other cultures, they can explore their own life journeys through new perspectives.
The Garrett Cultural Center is ODI’s hub for community engagement. Its auditorium is frequently used to plan and host all types of events. Study space is available.
