Embrace Diversity

We have a gift for bringing people together—because we believe everyone benefits when people of different ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and backgrounds join together to learn, live, and grow.

We know that an inclusive environment allows us to turn our differences into opportunities to forge new collaborations.

Tradition of Inclusion

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is proud of its long and deliberate tradition of inclusion. It is one of the pillars on which the institution rests, reminding us of the continuous call to action that makes our campus community such a welcoming place for students, faculty, staff and visitors.

The Office for Campus Diversity works with campus and community partners to cultivate an inclusive learning environment, one that values different perspectives and promotes intercultural engagement. We strive to create a diverse and inclusive community in which all members feel valued, respected and able to reach their full potential.

In August 2019, the University President approved the Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence -- an ambitious roadmap for building a more inclusive community over the next three years. Based on the Inclusive Excellence Strategic Framework, the plan is more than just a short-term project or an initiative from a single office. It requires an institutional transformation in which everyone plays a part.
