Campus Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) serves as a catalyst to create a campus where the concepts of diversity and inclusion are welcomed and valued, with the understanding that this work is not easy; creating change is a challenging process.

History of CDI

Over the years, the functions undertaken by Campus Diversity and Inclusion have been covered by the University’s Equal Opportunity Officer and, with the creation of the Multicultural Center, by the Director of Multicultural Affairs.

In the past five years, the University has moved to the current model: a department of Campus Diversity and Inclusion.┬áCDI encompasses campus-wide programming, the Multicultural, Pride and Women’s Centers, International Student Services as well as First Generation Student Programs.
