Office of Diversity And Social Justice
The Office of Diversity and Social Justice 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 ODSJ 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 ODSJ 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 ODSJ 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.
