Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Academic Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ADEI) provides many engaging educational experiences to work towards an inclusive campus where everyone respects the value and dignity of all its members.  ADEI is comprised of the Diversity and Cultural Resource Centers,  Undocumented Student Support, Social Justice Education (SJE) program, and the Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity and Education program.  Your contribution will support students who work with these units.  Additionally, it will provide opportunities for our students to enhance their cultural competency through campus-wide social justice education programs.
