For a university that values individuality, Redlands is certainly an easy place to discover your fit.
It’s no accident either, nor is it a matter of simply attracting a diverse student body from all walks of life and all corners of the globe. In fact, it’s a major part of our vision for a learning environment that challenges perceptions, stretches boundaries and invites ongoing self-examination. We even have an Office of Campus Diversity & Inclusion (CDI) to ensure that these values are incorporated throughout student life.
Ultimately, though, it’s the Redlands family’s many differences that unite us. We all bring our unique experiences and perspectives with us everywhere from the classroom to the cafeteria. Sharing them openly and respectfully isn’t just encouraged—it’s a part of our daily life.
Campus Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) serves as a catalyst to the campus community on matters related to diversity, multicultural programming and cultural pluralism, including expanding the notion of diversity and multiculturalism beyond race, gender and sexual orientation.
CDI works collaboratively with many individuals, departments and offices to create a campus where diversity is welcomed and celebrated. Campus Diversity and Inclusion oversees the Multicultural Center, Pride Center, and Gender Justice Center.
CDI also works with Native Student Programs (NSP) to honor Native Nations and address educational access and persistence barriers faced by Native students on and off campus.
