The Division of EDISA Departments and Programs

A Framework for Success

Under the division of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Student Affairs, students and staff will find the services and programs aimed at providing support, information, assistance, and leadership — bringing equity and inclusion for all campus demographics. The work will create a more welcoming and inclusive environment, increase the cultural competencies of the university community, and advance institutional goals of recruiting and retaining students, faculty, and staff.

Below you will find the various departments and programs that are part of the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Student Affairs division. Each offers something unique in the broad spectrum of campus services and student support. See each site for complete details and contact information.
