fb Office of Diversity and Inclusion | Wichita State University

The health and safety of our students, employees and community remain our top priority. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion will operate in a hybrid format to ensure you receive the necessary support during this unprecedented time.

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 classes are in a hybrid format for the spring 2021 semester, programs and services are still available for students through the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. While your experience may be different now, we hope you choose to embrace the change and continue to work hard to be successful.

Please see the following changes that have been affected by COVID-19 precautions:

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.

Passage 2 Success

Your Best Path to Shocker Nation!

Are you an incoming first-year student who plans to attend Wichita State University? Passage 2 Success (P2S) is a week-long retreat for incoming freshmen from diverse backgrounds to help in their transition to Wichita State University! The purpose of this retreat is to connect with other incoming students, meet current WSU student leaders, explore Wichita and gain the skills and tools to be socially and academically successful.

This program will be hosted the week before classes begin, with the option of early move-in for those living on campus.
