The Office of Diversity and Inclusion/Multicultural Programs provides the Emmanuel College community events and programs that affirm identity, promote inclusion, and challenge inequality. The office sustains long-running programs including the NIA Retreat, the Genesis Stole Presentation for Graduating Students of Color, and Through the Wire programming.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion/Multicultural Programs is located in the Center for Diversity and Inclusion in Marian Hall 222. The Center opened early in the Fall Semester of 2016 and welcomes all members of the Emmanuel community. The Center offers a conference room that can be used for student organization meetings, studying, and socializing. Culturally themed resources can also be found in the Center, including books, DVD's, and periodicals. Resources for LGBTQ+ students are also available here.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion/Multicultural Programs also advises the College's Multicultural Clubs and Organizations. In this role, the Office is able to develop events in collaboration with our students that meet the needs of the college community. The collaborations allow the Office to plan for thematic programs (Black History Month, Native American Heritage Month, Latino Heritage Month, Lunar New Year, and National Coming Out Day), new initiatives and special events.
