Diversity at UGA
The Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) leads the university in fulfilling its commitment to be a diverse campus that is enriched and informed by the personal, cultural, and intellectual differences of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. As UGA grows more diverse, creating a welcoming climate of respect and inclusiveness for all is more important than ever.
The Diversity and Inclusion Certificate creates an opportunity for faculty and staff to explore strategic areas around diversity and improve their ability to contribute to the enhancement of UGA’s welcoming and inclusive environment. The certificate will also enable participants to get a closer look at the people, institutions and initiatives that play a key role in supporting and fostering diversity at UGA.
The UGA Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) is an advisory board with responsibility to the Provost via the Associate Provost for Institutional Diversity. The UGA Diversity Advisory Council serves as a broad-based advisory group with representation by the major components of the university so as to have a voice from students, staff, faculty, and administrators. The UGA Diversity Plan serves as a blueprint for the continuous improvement in diversity and inclusion as core values at UGA
The Office of Multicultural Services and Programs (MSP) works to create an inclusive campus environment by supporting the development and affirming the overall experiences of all students, particularly multicultural students. The MSP Office also advise and provide leadership opportunities for 13 multicultural student organizations.
