University Diversity Office

The University Diversity Office is a campus wide resource that facilitates the diversity initiatives of the University to promote a climate and culture that respects and celebrates diversity. A significant responsibility of the office is for the recruitment and retention of a diverse student, faculty and staff population.

The role and scope of the office is to reach underrepresented groups and other non-traditional groups included under the board definition of diversity. Eastern Kentucky University promotes a climate that respects and celebrates diversity within its community that includes, but is not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, and cultural or national backgrounds, in pursuit of common unity.

The Diversity Swirl represents the diverse nature of our universe and the green background is the color of peace. The SWIRL represents the philosophy of the Eastern Kentucky University Diversty Office.
