Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Welcome from the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Eastern Kentucky University.

The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is committed to providing leadership, education, and resources in support of Eastern Kentucky University’s commitment to building a more diverse and inclusive campus community. As an institution we recognize that institutional excellence depends on how well we value, engage, and include the diversity of our campus community. The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion provides strategic leadership for efforts directed towards embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion into the institution’s recruiting, admissions, hiring and promotion processes; into its curriculum and co-curriculum, and into its administrative structures and practices.

We also strive to cultivate a sense of belonging by creating and sustaining a campus community that embraces diversity, achieves equitable outcomes, and models inclusiveness through opportunities for everyone to fully participate in the life of the university. We are an innovative team committed to improving campus climate and preparing students to lead in an increasingly diverse world.
