The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion serves as a resource and is charged with promoting and furthering the university's commitment to the principles of diversity inclusion and equal opportunity. The Oakland University Board of Trustees has made an unwavering commitment to equality of opportunity for all persons. In a society that relies on an informed, educated citizenry, no one should be denied the opportunity to attain his or her fullest potential. Therefore, the university has established a goal to build a community that welcomes and honors all persons and provides equal opportunity in education and employment consistent with all applicable laws.
