Center for Diversity Leadership and Engagement

The Center supports campus and community-based scholarship on issues of ability, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, sustainability, and military status and their intersections with other aspects of difference. Scholarship produced through the Center will aim to raise awareness, foster engagement, and encourage discussion on the aforementioned diversity priority areas. At its core, the Center is committed to academic leadership and engagement that breaks down the false dichotomy between rigorous scholarship, on the one hand, and campus and community involvement, on the other.
