The mission of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (OVCDEI) is to use the transformational power of our university to lead our campus toward an increasingly diverse and inclusive community that is open, just, and welcoming for all.

Gender & Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC) 

The GSRC fosters an environment that is open, safe, and inclusive for people of all sexualities and gender identities. The GSRC seeks to help in the efforts to address homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and heterosexist attitudes and beliefs on the campus, and to work to make the environment safe and affirming for all students, faculty, staff, and LGBTQIA+, queer, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people.
