Office for Diversity and Inclusion

"Transforming knowledge into understanding and passion to action."


Website Under Construction. New website coming soon.


Welcome to the Office for Diversity and Inclusion. At Ohio University we believe diversity is dictated by demographic and cultural shifts at home and abroad, and reflected in the combination of offices and initiatives within Diversity and Inclusion.


President McDavis We pride ourselves on the enrichment offered through a diverse educational experience. What better way to prepare our students to go out in the world to make a difference than offering them a transformative learning experience that is more reflective of our diverse global community? Diversity in all of its forms serves to enrich the distinct educational experience of our students, faculty, and staff.

Dr. Roderick J. McDavis, President, Ohio University



Dr Shari Clarke On behalf of the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Ohio University. The richness of the community reflects diversity of culture, region, age, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, ability and a myriad of cultural backgrounds. You will find Ohio University is a microcosm of a global society.

The Division of Diversity and Inclusion 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.

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 issues, Latin American Studies or Jewish history. Ohio University provides the opportunity for you to expand your view of the world.

 Dr. Shari Clarke, Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion
