The Office of Diversity & Inclusion collaborates with students, staff, faculty, alumnx, and community partners to implement programs and services that support the University’s commitment to inclusivity, equity and social justice.

Historical note: The Achievement Center was created in 1987 and housed the Tutoring and Writing Center. By the early 1990s (possibly earlier), it included African American Student Services, Hispanic/Latino/Chicano Student Services, Southeast Asian American Student Services, and other subunits. Around 1997 these subunits became known as the Equity Programs, and in 2001 the name changed to the Multicultural Programs. Beginning in 2008, campus directories list the Office of Cultural Diversity, which housed African American Student Programs, Asian/Pacific American Student Programs, Latino/Chicano Student Programs, International Student Services, and Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Services. In 2015 the name changed to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Please note that the Access Center, originally part of the Achievement Center, became the Office of Disability Resources; Access Center materials can be found in the Office of Disability Resources collection instead.
