As the Building the Road Map: Diversity and Inclusion at CU, Boulder and Beyond theme indicates, the Diversity and inclusion Summit is intended to create a continuous learning and interactive experience for all CU-Boulder. The Summit experience should extend into the daily lives of community members and go beyond the two-day, 45-session November 10-11 event. For more information, click here
The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement works to achieve the University's commitment to inclusive excellence and uphold it as a priority across the campus. The office fosters CU-Boulder's vision for a diverse campus climate and works with students, faculty, and staff to implement the campus diversity plan. Programs and activities are sponsored by ODECE to engage the campus and community members in valuing our common experiences and celebrating our differences.
Human diversity includes, but is not limited to ethnicity, race, gender, age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, religion, disability, political viewpoints, veteran status, gender identity or expression, and health status.
CU-Boulder embraces the involvement of every student, staff, and faculty member, recognizing that a truly diverse community includes individuals from a range of ethnic, regional, cultural, economic, and religious backgrounds—as well as first-generation students, persons with disabilities, students who are parents, people of different sexual and gender orientations, people of different ages and political viewpoints, and many others.
