The Diversity Center purpose provides a forum for the UIS community to unify, support each other, and share their cultural education achievements.


The Diversity Center is an cultural, educational and social entity on campus to represent and advocate the concerns and challenges for all students.

The goal of the Diversity Center is to foster a supportive environment for students to live, learn and grow as active members of the academic community and as individuals. We are dedicated to developing understanding of differences through educational, cultural, and social programming activities and to assist in the recruitment, transition and retention of ethnic minority and underrepresented students at UIS. The Diversity Center promotes intercultural dialogue and other initiatives to create a campus climate that welcomes diversity, eliminates divisions, intolerance, and stereotyping.
