Welcome to the Office for Diversity and Inclusion

A Message from the Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion

Dr Shari Clarke Vice Provost On behalf of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Ohio University. The richness of the University community reflects diversity of culture, race, gender, region, age, religion, ideas, socioeconomic levels, sexual orientation, ability and a myriad of multi-cultures. You will find Ohio University is a microcosm of a global society.

The Office for D&I serves as a leader and advocate for awareness, understanding and inclusion of all people. I urge you to step outside of your comfort zone and get to know someone different from yourself. Enhance your knowledge through program participation, attendance at a cultural celebration or by taking a course that explores Women's Studies, or African American Literature. Ohio University offers you the opportunity to experience the richness of diverse cultures, communities, and societies through a culturally educated view of the world. 
- Dr. Shari Clarke, Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion
