The Diversity Center is committed to empowering the PLU community to engage in dialogue, programs, and initiatives that promote and enhance equity, agency, and action. We value critical reflection, perspective taking, community, and care. Our department, under the leadership of the AVP of Diversity, Justice, and Sustainability, works to cultivate a sense of belonging for historically marginalized populations, foster a university commitment to diversity, justice, and sustainability, and nurture a diverse community of justice-minded leaders.
The dCenter is a community that explores and celebrates issues of intersectional identity and, social justice. Our programs and resources center the voices, leadership, and needs of minoritized identities inclusive of those who identify as people of color, LGBTQIA+, undocumented students, first in the family, and those interested in diversity, justice, and sustainability.
