Diversity Advocates

The Diversity Advocates program is a diversity and inclusion learning community equipping faculty, staff and students with diversity-related skills and strategies to use on the job and around our campuses. By participating in training and engaging with colleagues and peers, Diversity Advocates become empowered change agents.
