Wichita State University - Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Your Home Away From Home!

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion aims to cultivate and sustain an inclusive campus. We strive for academic excellence by creating an environment that educates, empowers and mobilizes our students, campus and community. In our community, our members view themselves as ambassadors for fundamental freedoms and respect the differences in others.

The office provides dynamic programs, which range from speakers and film showings to award ceremonies, cultural festivities and LGBTQA programming — each representing a small piece of the diversity displayed on the WSU campus.

Students remain our top priority.

As we are returning back to in-person programming, we want you to know that the Office of Diversity and Inclusion remains committed to your health and safety. While you experience things returning back to the way it was, we hope you understand that our office will continue to take precautionary measures to provide a safe environment as much as possible. We hope you continue to work hard to be successful throughout this transition.

Please see the following adjustments as we return to normal operations:

Black Excellence is a newly launched platform that will provide resources to build on culture, tradition and intersectionality to support academics, identities and social excellence for students.

In this platform, students will be provided campus resources, professional development, academic support, connections to Black faculty, staff and alumni, and a Living Learning Community for those living on-campus.

Latinos Lead is a program that focuses on facilitating a seamless transition from college to the workforce by focusing on three areas, including cultural awareness, personal development and leadership skills. Students will gain improved self-awareness across leadership competencies, access to a cross-sector and multi-industry network of Latino professionals and enhance their career presence and personal brand.
