Diversity News & Events
Welcome to the Office for Equity and Diversity
The Office for Equity and Diversity is deeply committed to enhancing the success and enriching the educational experience of faculty, students, and staff who self-identify as African American, Latina/o or Chicana/o, Asian American, Pacific Islander, American Indian, members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning community, and women in underrepresented fields.
The Office for Equity and Diversity and American Indian Resource Center (AIRC) is proud to present its first American Indian/Alaska Native, non-major specific scholarship at the University of Utah. This scholarship supports American Indian/Alaska Native students who are committed to working towards their educational goals and who demonstrate the ability to make positive changes in their community. The scholarship’s framework will create a lifecycle where students are recruited to participate in our Diversity Scholars Program, led through graduation and mentor as ambassadors to future students and community.
