Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Cultivating a Culture for a Stronger United Campus


The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Anti-racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion would like to invite you to participate in SIU's Diversity Week. Diversity Week offers the best contemporary thinking surrounding issues of anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion. The theme, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Cultivating a Culture for a Stronger United Campus” focuses on bringing together the campus and community for fun activities and educational events that celebrate and foster appreciation of our differences. We encourage faculty, staff, and students to join us for all the events which include performances, workshop sessions, panel discussions, music, artistry and much more.
