Mission Statement

Welcome to the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

MISSION STATEMENT

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) is focused on systems change in support of equitable and inclusive learning and community spaces.  Examples of this strategic approach to dismantling institutional and systemic racism include involvement with ongoing training for all faculty, staff, and administrators as well as implementing new policy and revising inequitable practices that create institutional racism.  In addition to offering educational opportunities for the HSU community, ODEI supports the recruitment and retention of faculty and staff of color.

Finally, as a campus community ODEI's mission is to strive forward with asset-based equity, student success, and student-centered initiatives that create equity, value diversity and inclusion.
