Office Of Diversity Initiatives Mission Statement

The mission of the Wright State University-Lake Campus Office of Diversity Initiatives is to:

  • foster a welcoming, inclusive campus culture
  • increase college access and provide wrap-around support for underserved and/or underrepresented students
  • enhance community relationships by fostering learning and engagement around issues of race, culture, and identity

Wright State Diversity Statement

Wright State University celebrates diversity. Our daily life is made rich by the diversity of individuals, groups, and cultures. Respect, tolerance, and goodwill are the keystones to enjoying the diversity of our world. Each member of humanity has a potential contribution to make to the whole. It is our duty to encourage and promote that contribution.

Wright State University is committed to achieving an intellectual, cultural, and social environment on campus in which all are free to make their contribution. We will achieve an environment in which every student may think, learn, and grow without prejudice, without intimidation, and without discrimination.

Wright State University promotes the acceptance and appreciation of every individual regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, ability or disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religious affiliation, or national origin.
