Vision and Mission



We visualize a synergistic partnership where all university members have the ability to identify, embrace and engender diverse communities that are equitable and inclusive. The Office of Academic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ADEI) foresees creating initiatives and programs which challenge and dismantle negative assumptions about otherness to fundamentally eliminate academic equity gaps.


We are dedicated to providing a dynamic educational experience that expands the understanding of differences cultures and identities with respect to the rich and diverse cultures represented on campus. We develop visionaries with the transformative skills to become change agents.
