Promoting God-Honoring Diversity

The Office of Diversity serves as a resource for the implementation and nurturing of campus-wide diversity-sensitive learning environments. The office supports faculty members through various professional development opportunities designed to help equip and support them for effective student learning engagement. Community learning opportunities are facilitated through the Diversity Workshop series and the annual national Christians on Diversity in the Academy conference. Faculty are also supported year-round through Faculty of Color Network luncheons, wider peer support, and the Diversity Ambassador Initiative.
