Global Diversity and Inclusion 

At the intersection of the presidential priorities of racial justice, equitable student success, and deepening community engagement lies a model of a university that represents what the future demands. 


The Division of Global Diversity & Inclusion is the institutional body partnering across campus to ensure the thriving of minoritized communities and the embedding of equity and justice in all campus operations. 

Student Support and Programs 

GDI is home to over a dozen resource centers and programs that serve and empower our increasingly diverse student community and leads efforts to advance equitable student success using holistic, asset-based and culturally relevant approaches. 


Equity and Compliance 

GDI’s Office of Equity and Compliance evaluates and investigates complaints of prohibited discrimination and harassment, assists in addressing systemic concerns based on a protected class, ensures compliance with federal and state laws and regulations, and oversees Title IX, VI, and VII compliance. 



Diversity Education and Learning

GDI develops diversity education offerings addressing a variety of needs and experience levels.  Through a combination of theoretical and practical knowledge-based approaches, our overarching goal is to cultivate a culture of praxis (a synergy of theory and practice) that allows us to live and embody diversity and equity-minded practices. 



Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advocacy 

GDI cultivates diversity, equity, and inclusion advocacy through the ongoing examination of all endeavors, activities, practices, structures, and systems at PSU. Campus community members are encouraged to join the President’s Diversity Action Council to be a part of PSU’s collective action to be an equitable campus.
