Our Ongoing Commitment to Dismantling Systemic Barriers
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) is unequivocally committed to the movement to create equity for all historically marginalized groups. We stand in solidarity with the oppressed. Having said this, our focus going forward is to define and understand our role, which is to provide educational programming and strategies to dismantle institutional and systemic inequities at Western Michigan University.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is working to create engaging and challenging programming with an emphasis on expanding perspectives. We will be calling on all levels of the University to weave equitable practices throughout the work that is conducted on behalf of this University. Together, we can build a better University that truly demonstrates the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
