Chief Diversity Advocates

Advancing the mission of UD takes all members of the community.

Embracing and advancing diversity is an institutional value and academic priority.

As you know, diversity is a core value of the educational experience here at UD. We want diversity to be both a compositional and intellectual enterprise in order to foster a more inclusive, engaged and welcoming campus.
