The Council strives to elevate diversity and inclusiveness throughout the organization with the purpose to:

Center for Diversity and Inclusion

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion, located in the Commons Building, opened in February of 2013. The Center provides a safe space for all members of our community, and is used for the educational, curricular, and social programs as a meeting place for student-run affinity groups. Most recently, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion has been the site for a series of workshops entitled, Facing Racism in a Diverse Nation.
