Who We Are

Rooted in the Dominican tradition, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion serves as a safe space for all members of the Aquinas community to engage in empathic cross-cultural exploration, as well as to develop a deeper understanding of their individual cultural identity. Particular emphasis is placed on fostering the holistic development of racially and ethnically underrepresented students.

What We Do

  • Host diversity speakers to increase cross-cultural awareness
  • Facilitate workshops on creating a more inclusive campus climate
  • Organize events for the campus to engage a variety of cultural traditions
  • Provide volunteer opportunities to combat social inequities

What We Value

We believe all students benefit from a multicultural learning environment. Encountering diverse perspectives and experiences prepares students to be successful in a global society.
