Our Mission: We transform lives.

In order to build an inclusive campus environment, the office provides professional development programs, learning-on-demand resources and trainings by request.

Learning-on-Demand Resources 

ODEI offers a curated set of online resources on a variety of DEI topics on our blog (open to all) and on Percipio (campus log-in required). 

 The Cap-A.B.L.E. Workshop Series

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion invites you to participate in the Cap – A.B.L.E. Workshop Series. The Cap – A.B.L.E. Workshop Series is a new programmatic approach in exploring issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) inside of higher education. The series is built around the principles of intergroup dialogue – active and engaged learning environment, facilitated discussions, and an intergroup focus. Throughout the series, participants will: (1) examine the organizational structures and social foundations of higher education, (2) define and recognize the importance of DEI to the academic enterprise, (3) practice fostering and facilitating conversations around DEI, and (4) create an action plan for enacting change.
