What is the Diversity Center?

The Diversity Center (DC) offers a nurturing, inclusive, and brave space for UP community members of all-backgrounds (race/ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, religion, national/geographic origin, language use, SES, FGEN, Veteran/Military status, intersectional identities, etc.). This is a space for people to study, relax, meet, interact, and engage with each other in a supportive learning environment. It is a place of mutual respect and cultural humility.
