DIVERSITY STUDENT PROGRAMS

Diversity Student Programs fosters an environment that is inclusive and supportive of traditionally underrepresented students. We strive to provide a safe space for cross cultural dialogue and engagement. Our passion for diversity and social justice is evidenced by actively working to challenge systems and structures that perpetuate inequities. Making ESU a diverse and inclusive community is the work and support of our entire community. We encourage all to participate in the unique and impactful programs we offer.
