A Message from OIE

In alignment with our mission, the Office for Institutional Equity is committed to respectful dialogue and the fostering of a diverse and inclusive community. Although recent campus, local, national, and international issues may prove challenging, sharing different perspectives can foster a more dynamic and inclusive community. However, to truly promote understanding and education, this sharing of different perspectives must respect the dignity and worth of each human being and reflect the wide range of human experiences, beliefs, and practices.
