Building a stronger Oglethorpe

Promoting a culture of equity, inclusion, access, and belonging

Make a Difference

Oglethorpe is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion as an institutional core value.

Mission Statement

Established in 2021, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion leads the university in our commitment to establishing a welcoming and inclusive campus community for all.

Through key collaborations and strategic partnerships with academic and administrative units, the DEI office enhances education and awareness of intercultural competency for faculty, staff, and students, promotes opportunities for campus and community partnerships to advance equity and inclusion, and cultivates resources that support the university’s inclusion efforts.

The DEI Task Force, which coordinates efforts in diversity strategic planning, campus climate, and community partnerships, represents faculty, staff and students from across campus.

We aim to foster a campus environment that:

  • Includes those who have been traditionally excluded
  • Promotes a culture that respects and values our diverse experiences and perspectives
  • Understands the role of inequalities in shaping our individual and collective identities and experiences
