At Oakland City University, diversity and inclusion are integral to our mission of enhancing intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social development for positive leadership. We carry out this mission by embracing individual differences flowing from the diverse backgrounds, ideas, perspectives, and experiences represented in our campus community. Individual and group differences in our campus include, but are not limited to, diversity in personality, learning modality, race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, cultural and linguistic background, socioeconomic status, political ideology, and religious belief. We support our mission by providing opportunities where faculty, students, and staff intentionally engage with diversity as equal partners.
Diversity Mission Statement
OCU strives to provide an environment where all members of our community can develop the necessary skills to find their way in an increasingly diverse world and contribute towards building a more just and equitable global society.
