The University is committed to fostering diversity through its many student resources. Several campus-wide offices offer support and resources for students across the University. In addition, many of the professional schools house diversity offices of their own. We hope you’ll explore—and use—the wide array of resources on campus.
Many offices on campus focus on bringing diverse people together through events, resources, and other community-building programming.
This is a sampling of University offices working on diversity. Check with your program or dean of students for resources offered by your school or department.
