Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

Cutler Hall ClockOur Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

OHIO is committed to promoting a campus environment that fosters and celebrates access, inclusion, and belonging for all students. Each and every one of you will bring a unique perspective to your classes, campus jobs, residence halls, and student organizations. Regardless of who you are and your journey to OHIO, you belong here.

Diversity describes who we are, the many visible and invisible differences between and among individuals, groups, and cultures that make up our communities. Diversity includes all ages, races, ethnic groups, abilities, genders, gender identities, sexualities, national origins, cultures, socioeconomic classes, abilities, lived experiences, geographic regions, and religions.  

Being a Bobcat means being in a culture that celebrates difference and diversity. It means being inspired to learn new things, to listen to others and learn from their experiences, to cultivate friendships that are meaningful, and to explore who you are.  

Here at OHIO, we have embraced the tangible benefits of engaging and supporting the individual uniqueness of our students. Students who feel that they belong thrive academically and devote passion to their studies. Students whose access needs are met learn better. Students whose identities are valued and celebrated share their voice, their perspective, and their experience with their peers.   

Students who learn with and from others with different backgrounds and experiences are best prepared to succeed in their chosen careers, become leaders in and across local, national, and global communities, and positively impact our world.  

The Division of Diversity and Inclusion serves and celebrates all students by helping them navigate their diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives in ways that empower them to grow and thrive at OHIO.

The four areas within our Division — the Multicultural Center, the Pride Center, the Women’s Center, and Diversity and Inclusion Programs — continuously envision and implement strategies that engage the cultural richness of our campus in pursuit of OHIO’s mission, vision, and values. 

We are excited to provide you with the opportunity to expand and enrich your worldview!
