Diversity Center Alumni

The Diversity Center is committed to providing alumni with insight into   diversity and inclusion initiatives, challenges, and successes on campus.  We also strive to create space for alumni to  (re)connect with each other, The Diversity Center, and the university. Whether or not you were a student when the dCenter was established, our values of critical reflection, perspective taking and community resonate with a wide range of alumni who believe in our mission.  Please join us as we celebrate our continued efforts  as collective voices of resistance and change.

Summer 2018 | Virtual

We are excited to host an alumni reading group this summer.  You will have the opportunity, virtually, to engage in conversation with other alumni about a book that centers diversity, inclusion, and justice.  Votes for a text will be tallied – so share your favorite book or a book that you haven’t had time to read (yet!) for consideration.  The first five folks who register will receive a free copy of the text!
