The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion supports the development and implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives that create a welcoming campus climate that exudes a fundamental respect for human diversity in all its dimensions. We view diversity as encompassing all individuals and groups, as well as social, cultural, political, religious and other affiliations. The office is committed to the idea of respect for human diversity in our learning and working environs and to creating an atmosphere where prejudice, harassment and discrimination are unacceptable.

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is located in the Glenn G. Bartle Library, LS-G663.  You may contact staff by calling 607-777-4775 or e-mailing lhickey@binghamton.edu.
