Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Colorado State University-Pueblo students

A Message From The Director 

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion was developed in the Fall of 2009 on the campus of Colorado State University-Pueblo.  It is an area on our campus where students can visit and be greeted by friendly staff in a welcoming environment.  I am certain that our office offers resources to our campus students, faculty, and staff in the form of books, videos, and journals.  Our office is a place for social gatherings where students and other campus members can meet but more importantly feel accepted and appreciated.  I encourage all campus members to come by and visit the Office of Diversity and Inclusion or to simply get involved in our many programming events.
