About the Institute

OHIO's Diversity Leadership Institute, in its third year, brings members of the campus and OHIO campus communities together to share, learn and rigorously explore salient diversity, equity, and inclusion topics. Institute participants will have opportunities to engage in learning on an identified topic, spend time reflecting on and discussing the ways in which the topic relates to our global and local communities, and explore action steps we need to take to make our community more equitable and inclusive.
