Our curriculum includes training on diversity and inclusion at key junctures in the program. For students with individual needs and concerns, contact points are available within the department, college, and university for support and information about available resources:

Office of Student Success and Inclusion
The Office of Student Success and Inclusion (OSSI) sponsors and promotes programs that give students opportunities to be more proximate to diverse ideas and perspectives. OSSI also hosts events for specific populations including racial minorities, LGBT & SSA students, and religious minorities. In addition to programing, OSSI advisors are available to meet with students one-on-one to discuss individual concerns, questions, and ideas regarding inclusion and belonging on campus. To contact an advisor, feel free to visit 2010 WSC (across from the Varsity Theater) or email
