The Hodges University Center for Diversity, Inclusion and Cultural Competency (HUCDICC), operating within the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, is committed to leading a campus culture that is welcoming, safe, accepting, respectful, and promotes unity and opportunity for all.
The HUCDICC envisions a Hodges University where people of all identities and experiences are understood, appreciated, and fully included in the community and where equitable treatment and outcomes prevail.
The mission of the HUCDICC is to advance Hodges University’s commitment to respecting and valuing diversity by serving as a resource and liaison for students, staff, and faculty on issues of equity through education, outreach, and advocacy.
In collaboration with the Hispanic Institute, Student Development, Human Resources, the English as a Second Language (ESL) Department and the Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning, the HUCDICC is a gathering place where open dialogue on the subject of diversity inclusion and cultural competency will be at the forefront along with:
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion will initiate, support and direct training, education and activities that increase diversity and promote cultural competency among our students, faculty staff and administration. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion will build bridges to the larger community by serving as the catalyst for social change and transformation as it relates to diversity and inclusion.
