One of the most important goals as we open the student center is to ensure all who work and provide service and support to students will go through diversity and inclusion training. This not only includes WMU full-time and student staff, but also business partners who lease space. Through ODI’s input, three areas of training/education have been identified: “Identity, Power, & Privilege,” “Cultural Humility,” and “Preventing & Addressing Macroaggressions.” As needed, these topics may change.
Located in the heart of Western Michigan University's campus.
The innovative and iconic Student Center design includes an array of diverse spaces with student-oriented options in a welcoming and inclusive environment. The convenient central location in Hilltop Village serves Broncos in safe, world-class facilities.
Diversity and Multicultural Pathways
The Institutional Diversity and Multiculturalism (IDM) committee's main goal is to ensure the WMU Student Center will be welcoming, inclusive and supportive of all who enter and use the student-first facility. The committee is comprised of key student leaders, staff who will work in and manage the student center and staff from offices that support campus-wide diversity and inclusion efforts. IDM has developed a number of pathways that will ensure a welcoming, inclusive and supportive student center.
