Understanding Diversity & Multiculturalism

 

“How can one not speak about war, poverty, and inequality when people who suffer from these afflictions don’t have a voice to speak?”

– Isabel Allende (Chilean author, 1942- )

 

Diversity and multiculturalism are of critical importance in today’s charged political climate. The Office of Equity and Inclusion works hard to serve as a source of education and advocacy for the development of a multiculturally-inclusive University of Delaware community. We work diligently with our partners and allies in multicultural education to ensure a safe, supportive, equitable, and diverse environment and continually seek out opportunities to expand our own knowledge and that of our university colleagues.

One of the cornerstones of the university’s commitment to diversity is the Diversity Action Plan. This living document is a way to help the UD community better understand the importance that multiculturalism plays in all aspects of our daily life. Our dedication to creating and sustaining a more just, equitable, and inclusive community begins with the words contained within these pages and flows out into our individual and collective actions. It is all of our responsibility as Blue Hens to not only be aware of this focus, but to embody it in our daily lives.

Diversity @ UD

Diversity is represented in a wide variety of ways at the University of Delaware. We seek to give voice to all members of our diverse community and help to educate those eager to expand their understanding and ability to contribute positively to the Blue Hen community.
