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.

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
