Office of Diversity Equity and Inclusion

Mission

The ODEI aims to create a community of equity and inclusion by engaging in Christ-centered conversation and collaboration. The office’s focus on equity serves as a fundamental component to build an inclusive campus community. By introducing new ideas and best practices, we help individuals adapt, grow and benefit from one another. We believe that diversity is fluid, and our intention is to create spaces in the ACU community where courageous conversations can be held and intentional listening can take place in order to make positive changes resulting in inclusive excellence.

Our core agenda is to:

  • Create space for courageous conversations
  • Live into inclusion as a core ACU identity
  • Collaborate with the entire campus
  • Enable all members of the campus community to thrive with a sense of belonging
  • Hold the campus accountable for equity and inclusion
