Welcome back to on-campus living, learning and working!

The Committee on Campus Diversity and Inclusive Excellence (CCDIE) welcomes new and returning readers to its Celebrate Diversity Digest. We invite you to learn more about issues of campus diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice covered in this newsletter.

The CCDIE includes faculty, staff, students and alumni who contribute to the University’s efforts to support and further these four areas on our campus, as well as the University’s mission to develop engaged and effective citizens with the capacity to adapt to change in a multicultural, interdependent world.

We plan to publish three issues each semester and welcome your contributions and feedback.
