Office of Diversity

Fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for scholars and students is a top goal of the College of Education and Health Professions. The Office of Diversity moves beyond norms, stereotypes and expectations because the college is atypical. Degrees in Education or Health Professions, for example, are generally more attractive to women, so encouraging male students to apply to its programs is a focus. Our goal is to not only further diversify our college but to diversify the professions that our students will eventually enter.

The college's stance on diversity is not just focused on gender and race but includes disability status, sexual orientation, age, social class, language, and geographic location as well as a world view on cultures and religions. The inclusion of faculty, staff and students from all groups is key. We seek to reduce stigmas, break barriers and encourage equality and fairness.

The College Office of Diversity is affiliated with the University's Office for Diversity and Inclusion.

Educational programs to be held throughout the academic year now are being scheduled.

The office welcomes all students, faculty and staff with suggestions and questions.
