Alumni in Hawaii

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.
