Diversity Scholars

First Year Diversity Scholars is a First-Year Seminar that has achieved outstanding academic accomplishments and retention rates. The First Year Diversity Scholars Program supports students through a personalized campus orientation, regular interactions with faculty and staff of color, academic advising, multiple mentoring relationships, and off-campus community engagement opportunities. Most notably, the program is implemented as a cohort model that includes traditional admitted students, sponsored students, and scholarship students.

Annual Events

The Office for Equity and Diversity sponsors and help coordinate several large annual events on campus, including the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, Women’s Week, U Remembers, Pride, and the Pow Wow.
