The Department of Student Experience aims to foster a supportive, affirming and inclusive campus for racially and ethnically diverse students through programming where students can learn about themselves and others, creating spaces for cultural celebration, advocacy and exploring social justice through a diversity and inclusion lens.
We offer intentionally designed programming, events, and environments for students to engage in meaningful cultural dialogue, learn to navigate complex environments, and expand the understanding of racial and ethnic diversity on campus through a social justice lens.
