Office of Diversity Affairs

It's a small world. And you'll be playing a big role in it. Part of our mission is to "prepare students for thoughtful and informed living" -- that means expanding your awareness of the world around you.

Extend your worldview with international study and travel. Explore the rich cultures in our own backyard. Reach beyond what you already know -- beyond what's already comfortable.
