Office of Diversity And Inclusion

WELCOME

For the 11th consecutive year, Millersville University received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity Magazine. The honor was announced this week.

“As a campus community, we understand the value that diversity brings to the educational experience and to the life of our campus,” noted Dr. Daniel A. Wubah, MU President. “Inclusion is one of our core values. It motivates us to create an environment where differences can be expressed and respectfully heard. In the past year, we brought on Carlos Wiley as our Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, we dedicated the Divine Nine and Cultural Greek Council Memorial Walkway and added new living-learning communities to our residence halls. These are just a few of the many ways we are supporting a diverse student body.”

2022 HEED Award

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion advances Millersville University’s commitment to social justice, inclusive excellence and numerical, intellectual and interactional diversity by serving as an integral component of the Office of the President. One of the primary functions of the ODI is to support Millersville’s community of learners, teachers and leaders by cultivating a climate of collaboration and collective problem-solving related to diversity and social justice issues.

By working with the three Presidential Commissions on Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, Status of Women, and Gender and Sexual Diversity, the ODI provides strategic support to the President and campus leaders in expanding the opportunities for learning, leadership, and professional development for students, faculty, staff and community members. The ODI works with campus leaders to assess campus needs and identify opportunities for new or strengthened programs, activities, and services related to diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and social justice.

    The death of George Floyd has left us all with a heavy heart, and a troubled mind. We recognize as a community the need to actively work towards a path of anti-racism, and in the words of the great Angela Davis, "It is not enough to be non-racist, we must be antiracist." The Office of Diversity and Social Justice is committed to the dismantling of racism and systemic oppression, to ensure a safe and inclusive environment for all. For those who wish to take steps towards anti-racism action, we share a collection of literature gathered by Jane Mount to assist you in the journey of becoming an aspiring ally.
