Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives collaborates with departments, colleges, and student organizations to provide an array of events, programs, educational trainings, workshops, and webinars to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of diversity and inclusive practices in higher education and the wider community. This office also directly sponsors cultural celebrations throughout the year including Diversity Day and the MLK Living the Dream event. The overarching goal of the office is to expose the Mercer community to various multicultural events, trainings, lectures, and curricula to build, maintain and strengthen cultural competencies throughout the campuses while maintaining a Community of Respect, Honor, and Tradition. The office also offers opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to provide critical feedback by completing the Campus Climate Survey and coordinating an advisory board for the university.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives is located on the Macon campus on the main floor of the Connell Student Center (room 210), but serves all campuses. For more information and ways to get involved, call 478-301-2856 or visit http://mercer.edu/life-at-mercer/diversity-and-inclusion/.
