In July 2020, President Nick Ladany formed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force, charged with identifying areas for growth and determining action steps. The task force represents students, faculty and staff.

Additional initiatives include the addition of a Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, diversifying the Oglethorpe Core curriculum, diversity training for the Oglethorpe community, and expanded diversity programming including the continuation of community forums on racial injustice, which launched in summer 2020.
