Mission

The mission of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is to foster an inviting learning environment for faculty, staff, and students who bring varied human characteristics, backgrounds, interests, and points of views that serve to enrich the IUPUI community. We will continually endeavor to facilitate, build, and create interaction, understanding, and dialogue between our diverse cultures to achieve an increased inclusive community. Our collective goal is to instill diversity into our institution’s consciousness; reinforce it with equity and inclusion through our policies, practices, and programs; and prepare all members of the community for a multicultural world.
