Embrace. educate. empower.

CCI Diversity initiatives advocate for and provide diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) support (EMBRACE), education (EDUCATE), and resources (EMPOWER) to the students, faculty, and staff in the College of Communication and Information (CCI).

We work to serve the entire college community to ensure that everyone feels welcome, has support that fosters success, and is able to develop a strong sense of belonging. We are committed to addressing instances of bias, dismantling structures of oppression, and combating systemic discrimination that disproportionately impacts marginalized communities.

All CCI Diversity initiatives are driven by a comprehensive and inclusive definition of diversity. Diversity in CCI includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, socio-economic status, natural origin, ancestry, ability, genetic information, age, and military status.
