Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Whatever your race, national origin, religion, beliefs, age, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation or disability status, you belong at Indiana University East. In partnership with the campus community, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) aims to foster a diverse and inclusive culture. Through strategic planning, programmatic development, outreach and advocacy, we strive to transform our academic community into a place where all will thrive and grow as they recognize their value in an ever changing global community.

Diversity Statement

Indiana University East is an inclusive and welcoming campus that recognizes, celebrates and embraces differences and commonalities. This includes, but is not limited to, culture, language, ethnicity, race, religion, political opinion, socio-economic status, ability, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, veteran status, age and life experience. We are creating a learning and work environment in which people benefit from interaction with one another. At IU East, civil rights and civil liberties set the boundaries for respectful discourse and action. As we build an inclusive campus, Indiana University East will continue to engage in dialogue and commit the time, resources and leadership which will aid the continuous growth of respect for human rights of all peoples and cultures through curricular, co-curricular and administrative activities.
