Center for Diversity and Inclusion


The Center for Diversity and Inclusion works to reinforce and increase appreciation of the many aspects of diversity and culture through a variety of programs, initiatives, and collaboration. Our goal is to introduce the University of West Georgia to various cultures, stimulate productive thought and discussion regarding culture and diversity, and advance cooperation between other departments and student organizations. These goals are achieved through collaboration, growth and development, and encompassing a global perspective.

Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI) programs and events

The Center for Diversity & Inclusion hopes to further an understanding and appreciation of various cultural heritage monthly observations/programs: Black history month (February); Women’s history month (March); Asian Pacific heritage month (May); Hispanic/Latino heritage month (Sept. 15-October 15th) and Native American Month (November). The Center for Diversity & Inclusion’s annual events and programs also foster community engagement.
