Division of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion promotes Utah State University's commitment to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive institutional culture where everyone feels welcome and valued. Building and maintaining a sense of community and belonging requires DEI best practices and policies be strengthened and engrained in institutional goals and strategies.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion have been priorities of USU — especially since President Cockett assumed office in 2017. From creation of inclusive environments and centers, like the Latinx Cultural Center and the Center for Intersectional Gender Studies and Research, to funding and staff increases for USU’s Inclusion Center, the Veterans Resource Center, and the Office of Equity, USU is dedicated to making sure the campus community is welcoming for all.
USU is a community leader in these efforts and provides outreach through events like the Inclusive Excellence Symposium, the Community Diversity Dinner, the Utah Women & Leadership Project, and other initiatives under Aggies Think, Care, Act.
