To ensure equitable access for all, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides leadership by working collaboratively with the University community to identify and overcome institutional barriers and affirm the dignity, value, and uniqueness of each member of our community.


Western Michigan University will be a leader in the area of diversity and multiculturalism by fostering an environment where diversity in all its forms is investigated, explained, practiced, celebrated, affirmed, and vigorously pursued.
