Student Transition Programs strives to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, families, and guests as we provide the framework for students to learn and develop, regardless of race, religion, ethnic origin, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation. We would like to share the statement below from our Multicultural Center which reflects the values and principles that are the core of our mission.

We stand in solidarity with our Black and African American community- especially during these troubling times as hatred, inequity, oppression, and marginalization has been heightened. Our office respects the profound ways that our community members of various cultures, backgrounds, and identities enrich our university community. We value the contributions you have made and we now challenge you to lean on each other, as we extend our support to you during these painful times.

Please remember we are all here for you.

Below are resources where you can learn more about diversity and inclusion on our campus, as well as assistance if you are struggling.
