Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

Your college years are truly a time to learn about the world around you 鈥 to observe and ask questions; to meet other people whose thoughts, ideals and opinions may vary widely from your own, and to learn to respect and appreciate them.

The Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (EDIB) is dedicated to supporting all students by providing programming and other campus-wide initiatives that promote a greater understanding among people of different cultures, backgrounds, and experiences.
