The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) aims to foster a culture where every member of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) feels valued and inspired to achieve individual and common goals.
We have the opportunity as faculty, staff and students to celebrate differences and work together to further integrate diversity, equity and inclusion into our culture so it becomes who we are and what we do every day.
You Belong Here is an initiative though ODEI that supports a culture where every member of our college community feels valued, supported and inspired to achieve individual and common goals with an uncommon will.
Intercultural CANR: Exploring our Spirit is an ODEI initiative and series of events meant to make space and explore aspects of our identities that are talked about less in our conversations about inclusion.
This initiative provides an opportunity to explore the variety of religions, faiths, and spiritual practices that make up the tapestry of our spiritual lives in the college and the surrounding communities.
