The Diversity Initiative

The Diversity Initiative (DI) is a comprehensive, campus-wide endeavor devoted to enhancing and promoting diversity at Hodges University via the development and implementation of school-wide programs related to diversity. Programs include: Student Relations, Faculty Relations, Staff Relations and Community Relations.
  • Training - Workshops are conducted for students, faculty, staff and community via student and community organizations, both on and off the campus.
  • Student Relations - The major focus is a diversity audit, an assessment of students' perceptions of diversity at Hodges University. The Diversity Committee was developed in response to the expressed needs of students at Hodges University.
  • Faculty - The major focus is to assist the Human Relations programs in conceptualizing cutting-edge diversity-related programs for all faculty from every academic discipline.
  • Staff - The major focus is to assist the Human Relations programs in conceptualizing cutting-edge diversity-related programs for all Hodges University staff.
  • Community -  The major focus is to build bridges to the larger community and to work with groups to bring a wider and more highlighted focus to the experiences of diversity.
