Our History

Our office originated as the Cultural Center and the Gender Equity Center, both founded in 2005. The two offices merged in 2017, to become the Center for Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity (CEID). We carry on the goal of supporting the academic, professional, and personal success of multicultural students of all genders. We strive to accomplish this goal through providing a supportive environment, resource and scholarship information, in addition to the services mentioned above. CEID empowers student leaders, whom we call Student Commissioners, to explore, celebrate, and educate the campus community about gender, racial, and cultural equity.

CEID Initiatives
