Get Involved

Because we believe that equity and diversity is everyone’s everyday work, we recognize the importance of working collaboratively to achieve common goals. We offer a variety of opportunities for involvement, with different time commitments and areas of concentration. Students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members may explore new interests and share their passion and talents by volunteering with the Office for Equity and Diversity and its units.

Some of the benefits of volunteering with us include:

  • Developing new skills and perspectives
  • Networking and building community
  • Learning about equity and diversity issues
  • Leadership opportunities
