Office for Diversity and Community Affairs

Welcome to the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Community Affairs!

The Office for Diversity and Community Affairs was created in January 2001, in response to recommendations of the President's 1999 Taskforce Report. The Office for Diversity and Community Affairs leads the President's and College's initiatives concerning community, diversity, civility, equity, and anti-discrimination. The Office, working with others in the College, addresses issues from faculty, staff, students, and alumni. These concerns may overlap with equity, anti-discrimination, retaliation and due process concerns, sexual assault and other gender-based misconduct concerns. The philosophy is to encourage the College community to listen, learn, educate, and work together in positive ways. At the same time, the Office focuses on systemic issues by addressing policy and procedural concerns.
