Welcome to the Center for Social Justice & Inclusion!

The mission and vision of the CSJI is to be an affirming, accessible, and inclusive space where learning & compassion is fostered through community & belonging.

At the center of our work is our core values - the ideals and concepts that are integral to promoting our mission and reaching our vision. These values are:

  • Student-focused approach
  • Equity
  • Curiosity
  • Resourcefulness
  • Accessibility

We utilize our core values and the mission and vision to guide us in setting, accomplishing, and assessing our goals. The specific nature of our goals change with time, staff, and the campus make-up, however the goals of the CSJI fall under the following:

  • Create and implement programs and events that cater to the needs of students
  • Grow and enhance internal/external partnerships
  • Facilitate student development through attendance at national conferences
  • Create and provide workshops and trainings on topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion for students, and campus community across campus
