Diversity and Equity Center


The Diversity & Equity Center combines the programs and services of the Multicultural Student Success Center and Women's Programs and Services to recruit, retain, and graduate students of color, re-entry women, and LGBTQ students. The Center also serves as a campus resource center on diversity and coordinates institutional diversity initiatives. The mission of the Diversity & Equity Center is to advocate for the academic success of our students; educate our campus and community about diversity, and celebrate our differences.
