The Office of Diversity and Inclusion establishes partnerships with community members to create an inclusive student-centered environment that fosters respect for each person and celebrates each other’s differences.
Mission and Vision
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) is dedicated to providing intentional programs and services that enhance self-awareness, academic success, and cross-cultural engagement, as well as encourage individual and collective advocacy. We will assist in creating an inclusive campus environment that fosters respect for each person, equity, appreciation for all cultures, and promote diverse ideas within the NEC community.
ODI seeks to create an environment that is student-centered where all members build capacity for cross-cultural competence that serves as a catalyst for social justice.
