The Diversity Center’s mission is to eliminate bias, bigotry, and racism. We believe we can achieve this through teaching acceptance and building community. We hope our event has inspired you and given you hope that we can succeed!

When you support our work, you are helping a new generation of students and future leaders embrace their differences and become change agents for inclusion and diversity in our region. For the 2022-2023 fiscal year, our generous donor's support has empowered over 2,000 students and educators to engage in 191 diversity and inclusion centered workshops, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to become leaders and change agents in their schools.
