Diversity Relations provides an opportunity for all students, staff and community at large to:

  • Address academic and social barriers
  • Contribute to the educational and cultural planning for all to experience and learn from
  • Socialize and study with peers in an environment that enhances diversity understanding and relationships
  • Assist with researching various scholarship and internship opportunities
