A commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion
Welcome to the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This division advances Coastal Carolina University’s commitment to access, inclusion and diversity by providing leadership and providing support and resources for initiatives that strategically and proactively promote an institutional culture of inclusiveness and equity.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are key values and goals for CCU. In the University’s Strategic Plan – High Impact Engagement: 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, CCU established accessibility, inclusion and diversity as one of its six strategic goals. The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion leads and advances our efforts to engage students, faculty, staff and the greater community in a partnership of learning grounded in the liberal arts, based on respect for diversity and inclusion.
The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is comprised of its administrative office, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), Intercultural and Inclusion Student Services (IISS) and Accessibility and Disability Services (ADS).
Partnering with students, staff, faculty and community partners, the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion works to create and sustain an inclusive learning, living and working environment where all members of Teal Nation feel they are welcomed, respected, valued, and supported.
