Indiana State University. Office of Diversity | Cunningham Memorial Library Special Collections
Name: Indiana State University. Office of Diversity
Historical Note: The Office of Diversity began in 1992 under President Moore and focused on educating the ISU community through programs and training. In 2003, under President Benjamin, the Offices of Diversity and Affirmative Action were merged and focused primarily on compliance with affirmative action laws and funding campus and community programs that were diversity oriented. In the fall of 2008, under President Bradley, the Office of Diversity and Affirmative Action was split into separate entities. The Office of Diversity advocates across units of the university to build ISU into a model of multicultural excellence for all who learn, live, and work here. We strive to build this sense of an inclusive climate and community and to enhance intercultural competency through training, co-sponsoring programs, and influencing policies and practices. You can contact the Office of Diversity to arrange for presentations and training, to solicit support for diversity-related events, or discuss diversity in your classes or work place.
