The Office of Student Diversity Initiatives exists to empower and support students of all backgrounds and walks of life, and we welcome differences in age, race, ability, gender and sexual identity and expressions, ethnicity, religion or faith practice, socio-economic background, and geographic origin.
We welcome, celebrate, and support our diverse student body, and the development of an inclusive campus community.
We promote and engage students in intellectual dialogue and inquiry about their social identities.
The office focuses our programs and services on creating spaces and opportunities for students to examine how their intersecting identities shape their experiences and their understanding of their world.
We have an open-door policy; we welcome all campus community members and guests with questions, concerns, suggestions, as well as those seeking friendly conversation!
A campus of respect, commUNITY, and inclusive excellence
The office engages Cabrini's AHLANA*, international and LGBTQIA+** student body through intentional, identity-focused retention and success programs.
- *AHLANA, (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, and Native American)
- **LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, and/or Allies)
This office provides training, programs, and other special events that strengthen our inclusive campus community.
Through these initiatives, we serve as a place for support and affirmation of the diversity in our student body.
The leaves on our fingerprint tree represent our colors of diversity.
Just like no two fingerprints on earth are alike, no two personal experiences will be alike.
Thus, the tree signifies that although we are unique, like a leaf or a fingerprint, we are all rooted in the Cabrini CommUNITY.
