CDI Student of the Month

The CDI is excited to highlight some of the amazing students who are a part of the T-Bird family. This year we will continue our Student of the Month initiative where outstanding students can be nominated and featured throughout the school year. 

Nominations are accepted from any SUU faculty, staff, or student. Winners will be chosen by the CDI team and will be recognized physically in the CDI, in the electronic newsletter, and will be awarded a gift card in appreciation. 

The Student of the Month nominee should demonstrate the qualities of a leader, exemplify the CDI’s mission, and actively promotes the center’s message of inclusivity. Please nominate a deserving student for February

CDI Support Groups
Our director Joel will be starting a support group on the week of February 10 to 14. These support groups will happen twice a week, and in these groups, a topic of concern will be chosen by the participants and will be discussed by the group. It will be a safe space to talk about anything you want. All we ask is that the participants be respectful of each other during these sessions. If you're interested in attending, please provide Joel or a Beacon with ideas of topics, and the best day in the week and time to meet.

"Let's Talk" Sessions

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) exists to validate the multiple identities present on our campus, while integrating the voices and experiences of marginalized people. We provide emotional, social, and financial support to students from historically underrepresented communities (e.g. students of color, LGBTQIA+ students, first-generation college students, etc.)

The CDI collaborates with campus partners to foster a learning environment that respects multiple perspectives and differences through multicultural clubs, workshops, trainings and cultural programming. The CDI invites members of the campus community to join in conversation about how to cultivate an inclusive, safe, and welcoming campus culture.
