This office partners with other campus departments and units to create inclusive and equitable opportunities for all students, faculty and staff, and is a campus partner in implementing key recommendations in the Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) Plan. ODECE oversees the following programs:
- HR offers diversity search and hiring, diversity learning and development (Making Excellence Inclusive 101), and frontline services employee (English Language Program) resources.
- The goal of the Center for Inclusion and Social Change (Center), is to support all students in the exploration of their identities and create a welcoming and inclusive space on campus that provides academic and personal growth.
