Office of Diversity & Inclusion


As the news about the Coronavirus continues to spread, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is committed to sharing knowledge and information related to building a supportive and inclusive community. We encourage members of our campus community to be aware of what is taking place to keep us safe and informed. Here is information about our campus response.(opens in new window)

Worrying about the Coronavirus can trigger numerous reactions. For some, concern about our well-being, as well as the health of family and friends, may give way to anxiety, hypervigilance, inability to focus and difficulty sleeping. Trying to keep updated via the news and social media can be stressful.

We can still have moments of joy and beauty even in times of crisis. Physically isolate yourself as much as possible while intensifying your social support networks. Reach out to your loved ones by phone or email. Have Skype parties. Do what feeds your soul but understand we are living in an unprecedented situation that requires us all to be flexible.

We are all in this together. Take Care

We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment where students, faculty, and staff can succeed and thrive. Together we can foster a climate that acknowledges and celebrates the differences that define who we are.
