Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging

Diversity Education Fellow
In order to expand our diversity education initiatives and dialogue offerings, the Center for Student Diversity has established a doctoral-level fellowship to facilitate diversity/inclusion workshops for students, faculty, and staff around a range of topics. The recent President’s Task Force on Race and Race Relations recommended and endorsed the establishment of the fellowship.
First Year Experience (FYE) Community FYIs
Designed to expand community-wide conversations and office/department partnerships that support student investment in the community and belonging.
Multicultural Greek Council Support
Following the addition of Delta Phi Omega sorority, Inc., Fraternity & Sorority Life staff worked with students to establish the Multicultural Greek Council. The council currently represents two sororities but is able to add more Culturally Based Fraternal Organizations (CBFOs) in the future.
Accessibility Improvements
The purchase of a manual wheelchair lift will allow for universal access to various sized stages and platforms throughout student meeting and event space in the Sadler and Campus Centers.
Neurodiversity Summer Bridge Program Expansion
This program is a 3-day summer orientation for first-year students with diagnosed conditions. The orientation is designed to provide tools and identify resources that will assist in neurodiverse students’ transition from high school to college. Funds will help accommodate more students and possibly expand to a longer bridge program in the future.
Intercultural Awareness Program (iCAP)
A unique program designed to engage students in the development of intercultural awareness, thus preparing them to live and thrive in an interconnected world. Funds will be used for publication materials, orientation, student activity fees, topic roundtables and luncheons focused on cultural awareness, and the capstone ceremony.
Cultural Field Trip
Financial support to secure round trip transportation for students and faculty/staff advisors to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C.
