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.
