Center for Diversity and Inclusion
Truman State University is home to more than 230 student organizations ranging from academic honors societies to social fraternities and sororities. The Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI) works with and helps support identity-based student organizations and historically Black fraternities and sororities that are registered with Truman’s Union and Involvement Services. The members of these organizations work to promote culturally relevant education and academic support. Through student organizations, leaders have the opportunity to develop their leadership capacity, increase their cultural competence, enhance intercultural communication skills, and establish meaningful relationships.
