Our Mission


The Diversity and Equity Center cultivates a sense of belonging and community on campus through programs and initiatives that encourage students to explore their identities, challenge barriers and empower themselves and their communities.

We do this by:

  • Encouraging exploration of identities and self, with a focus on supporting students from hxstorically marginalized backgrounds
  • Serving as a welcoming and inclusive physical space that is a hub for community gatherings and conversation
  • Validating experiences and affirming agency
  • Helping students create programs that promote social justice and/or encourage cultural wellness
  • Engaging in capacity-building exercises that assist students in developing the skills needed to be leaders in their communities

We believe that:

  • Similarities and differences alike contribute to a vibrant campus community
  • Examining systems of privilege, oppression and power provide pathways for social change
  • Every student, their communities, and their experiences belong and matter at CWU
