Diversity

We're proud of the many programs and services we offer on and off campus to support students by fostering a fundamental understanding of diversity, unique learning styles, cultural differences and human relationships.

Office of Academic Diversity and Inclusion: Offers programs that assist undergraduate and graduate students, with emphasis on students from traditionally underrepresented populations. OADI offers tutoring, academic advice, workshops and organizations that foster social and educational growth. 

The University Center for Academic Excellence: Provides free academic support to enrolled students! Services include Tutorials, Supplemental Instruction, Building Educational Strengths & Talents (B.E.S.T.), Structured Study Groups, The Learning Lab and Students Obtaining Success (S.O.S.).

Office of Identity, Equity, and Engagement: Created to educate, develop, and engage students regarding their various intersecting identities (gender identity, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, etc). Provides students an affirming and equitable environment committed to fostering a campus community that celebrates and supports expansion of identities. Through programs, workshops and dialogues, students have opportunities to critically explore the world we live in and engage in transformative learning experiences.

The Office of International Programs (OIP): Considered a national model of a comprehensive international education office. We promote curriculum development, faculty research and program implementation in the various colleges; administer the English Language Training Institute; and coordinate campus activities related to international students and scholars, education abroad, international exchange, cross-cultural training and world affairs education.

University Transition Opportunities Progam (UTOP) - an opportunity for incoming freshman students to begin their college experience early, gain seven credit hours towards their degree, start with a solid GPA foundation, get acclimated to campus early and build a support system of peers and staff across campus.
