The Student Government Diversity Outreach Department is a dedicated group of students who advocate for underrepresented students on campus. We support the Trans-Inclusive and Mental Health syllabi clauses, are advocating for online diversity competency training for incoming students, and are working towards making campus more accessible.

As a current student leader on campus, I work in the Women’s Center, one of the community centers under OIED. I have facilitated numerous programs during Black History Month, Women’s Herstory Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Feminist Friday’s and coordinated with the other community centers to provide open spaces for students to come and learn about a variety a topics they may not be familiar with. Within the past two years, I have been nominated for a both an Ebony Harlem Award and a Women’s Equity Award both award to students who reflect and represent through their leadership, dedication and talents the missions of the African American Cultural Center and the Women’s Center.
