Our goal is to develop programs to include a broader engagement with all of our diverse student populations and focus on extensive, inclusive programming across the UA campus.
Our mission is to intentionally connect students of all races, genders, cultures, sexual orientation, etc., in a holistic, inclusive, and supportive learning environment as emphasized in Vision 2020 and The Akron Experience.
We strive to provide resources and a variety of support systems for students as they explore diversity in their classroom experience providing a holistic approach to understanding the various multiplicities of diversity which include:
- gender expression and identity,
- spirituality and
- sexual identity.
