Center for Diversity & Inclusion

we are one image

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) serves the Truman State University Community by supporting diverse groups academically, emotionally, and socially.  We are grounded in inclusive excellence that invites the campus to engage academically and socially with identity development, intersectionality, inter-group relations and justice in order to develop a consciousness for the common good at Truman State University and the global community. 

Everyone has good and bad days, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion helps me with my everyday. Good or bad. I feel loved after visiting. –Jalisa Wines, Class of 2021

  • Foster an environment of inclusion & equity to bridge intercultural gaps & inequities
  • Provide opportunities for academic & cultural enrichment through our campus & collegial partnerships
