They provide leadership and support for the development of intellectual and cultural diversity in all aspects of teaching, research, service, scholarship and learning. The office strives to create a diverse community of students who are our future leaders, thinkers, researchers, educators, and decision-makers.

The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion historically has served graduate students in the College of Education. In the coming years, the office would like to expand it's services to included the undergraduate students her in the College in our ECFS major.

The office would like to implement focus groups to get a better sense of how to support these students and then develop support programs for those students. This could include but not limit to a mentor program,community development programming, or working with the ECFS department to create professional development opportunities for underrepresented undergraduate students.
