Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion

Guided by John Carroll University’s mission, vision, and core values, the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion develops programs to educate the entire campus community on issues of diversity, inclusion, and multiculturalism. At the same time, it provides services and support for students from historically underrepresented populations. The Center nurtures a sense of belonging for students from diverse backgrounds. It also encourages them to participate actively in their curricular and co-curricular learning, including campus and community organizations, leadership opportunities, and intercultural experiences. In collaboration with other University departments, the Center coordinates programs and services that foster an inclusive campus environment, promotes a welcoming and just University community, and encourages and values the contributions and perspectives of all students.

The goals of the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion are as follows:

  • To provide campus-wide programs that further the development of cultural competence and respect for diversity and social justice on the part of all students.

  • To develop, implement, and evaluate programs and services that support historically underrepresented students and marginalized communities in their personal development and transition throughout their John Carroll University experiences.

  • To provide leadership opportunities for historically underrepresented students that focus on engagement in campus and community organizations.

  • To identify, examine, and recommend organizational changes that remove barriers to inclusion and promote student success.
