The President's Commission on Diversity

The Office of Institutional Initiatives is dedicated to advancing the college's mission to build and maintain a diverse and inclusive community committed to broadened educational opportunities within an atmosphere of respect for others. As part of the president's senior staff, the vice president for institutional initiatives also serving as the chief diversity officer and deputy Title IX officer for the campus focuses on guiding and coordinating across all divisions of the campus to create and maintain a culture of diversity and inclusion for all members of our community. One of those ways is through the President's Commission on Diversity.

The mission of the President's Commission on Diversity is to help the college to advance, monitor, and sustain a diverse and respectful community among students, staff, administrators, and faculty.  It works with all segments of the Dickinson community to ensure that diversity is a critical part of the college's mission.  It seeks to make the college a vibrant and challenging community as students learn to engage the world.
