The mission of the Office for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (ODEI) at SRSU is to create a campus environment where all students, staff, and faculty are welcome and included. ODEI creates a network of support programs for students, staff, and faculty that provide opportunities for meaningful cross-cultural interactions and discourse that promote respect for diversity and equity. We strive to create a campus climate in which the benefits of multiculturalism, diversity, and equity are appreciated and valued. Additionally, we work with offices, departments, programs, and student organizations across our campuses to host cultural celebrations and activities that are educational and that enhance our students’ abilities to succeed in a global community.
