Diversity enriches the experiences and expands the social and conceptual horizons of students and of faculty and staff members, and it enhances the university’s ability to contribute to the intellectual, cultural, economic, and social advancement of the communities and individuals it serves.

In order to promote and sustain diversity in areas including race, class, gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, ableness, affectional orientation, gender expression, and other aspects of self-identification, UCO provides a variety of resources for students, faculty and staff members, and members of the wider community.
