In support of our campus’ commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice, we advance a purposeful campus climate that capitalizes on the educational benefits of diversity, through student-centered advising, advocacy, programs, research, and practices. Our collective work results in positive student outcomes observable in their learning, identity development, involvement, and leadership.

We support all students at the University of Maryland. Our work is important and provides opportunities and spaces that affirm students and their identities, build inclusive communities among diverse members, and create social change locally, nationally, and globally.

We encourage students to participate in both culturally specific and cross-cultural involvement and leadership experiences.

We do not do this work alone and through our values of collaboration, personal commitment, authenticity, and inclusion; we serve our campus in its goals to achieve equity and social justice.
